Woodstock Sessions by Rich Robinson
Double vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Reissue of this album. There’s something special about an artist who seeks out the opportunity to record an album in just two days, and it’s even more special when that album is recorded in front of a live audience. On May 31 and June 1, 2014, Rich Robinson invited an intimate group to Applehead Studios in Woodstock, N.Y. to join him as he recorded a new album. Rich was a founding member of The Black Crowes. Along with older brother Chris Robinson, Rich formed the band in 1984 (originally called Mr. Crowes Garden) while the two were attending Walton High School in Marietta, Georgia. Robinson was influenced by The Rolling Stones, The Allman Bros., Cactus, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Neil Young, Captain Beyond, R.E.M., Led Zeppelin, John Fahey, and Nick Drake.
