The Rolling Stones Ink DVD Deal With Eagle Rock

Eagle Rock Entertainment is delighted to announce that they have signed a deal with the Rolling Stones to release two DVDs this year.  The Rolling Stones have long been viewed by many as Britain’s most important rock ‘n’ roll band and these releases, concentrating on some of their finest work laid down in the ’70s, will certainly cement that reputation.

 

The first of the releases Stones In Exile is the story of the making of the classic album Exile On Main Street, which was released in 1972 as a double LP and is considered by many to be their masterpiece.  This title is due to be released in June with substantial bonus material and follows the broadcast of the main show by the BBC in late May, and the reissue of the album at the same time.

 

The second of the releases is Ladies And Gentlemen…The Rolling Stones, the legendary Rolling Stones concert film from 1972.  Fully restored from the original film, it will be released nationally in cinemas and then receive its first ever authorized DVD release.  The title will also be released in high definition on Blu-ray in the Autumn of 2010.

 

The Rolling Stones line-up featured on both Stones In Exile and Ladies And Gentlemen… The Rolling Stones is: Mick Jagger – vocals; Keith Richards – guitars; Bill Wyman – bass; Charlie Watts – drums; Mick Taylor – guitars.

 

Geoff Kempin of Eagle Rock commented, "We are delighted to add a band of such unparalleled caliber as the Rolling Stones to our catalogue and are delighted to bring to consumers a pair of such important and high quality titles."

JONNY LANG: ‘Live At The Ryman’ Live Album Out April 20; “Experience Hendrix Tour” Underway; “Live By Request” Tour Starts May 21

JONNY LANG is a touring maniac and he’s not slowing down anytime soon.

 

As he gears up for the April 20 release of his first-ever live album, LIVE AT THE RYMAN (Concord Records), he’s criss-crossing the U.S. as part of the “Experience Hendrix Tour,” which features an all-star line up of music greats paying homage to the music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix including: Joe Satriani, Brad Whitford of Aerosmith and Kenny Wayne Shepherd, among many others.  The trek concludes March 28 in Durham, NC.

 

From there, he won’t have much time to rest.  After spending a week off, he’ll head back on the road for a brief run in Canada, followed by a number of festivals and headlining shows.  Then starting May 21, he’ll kick it up a notch as his “Live By Request” tour launches in Clearwater, FL at Ruth Eckerd Hall.  For that round of dates, lasting through the Fall, Lang’s fans will be able to log on to his website (www.jonnylang.com) starting on May 1 and submit a song request for the show they are attending.  Lang will then build a set list every night from the requests for those specific shows.

 

LIVE AT THE RYMAN captures that passion and energy with the release of Lang’s first record since 2006’s TURN AROUND, which earned him a Grammy® Award for Best Gospel Album.  Recorded at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, in the summer of 2008, Live at the Ryman, Lang’s first ever live recording, offers a compelling glimpse of a young guitarist at the height of his creative powers, yet still open to exploring the depth and range of the blues and its relationship to R&B, soul, rock, gospel, funk and so may other emotionally riveting forms of music.

 

LIVE AT THE RYMAN is the record that Lang has wanted to make because it paints a vivid picture of how his blues-launched career led him to successful soul, rock, R&B, and gospel recordings.   His inability to be complacent or safe in his musical journey is amplified in his powerful and electrifying live performance of these genre-crossing songs.

 

“I’ve wanted to do a live record for a long time, because I feel like our band is strongest in the live setting,” says Lang. “I think this record is a good representation of our live show, and an accurate reference for people who haven’t seen us yet. Hopefully it will be an inspiration for them to come out and see us.”

 

Backed by the five-man crew of guitarist/vocalist Sonny Thompson, keyboardist Tommy Barbarella, bassist Jim Anton, drummer Barry Alexander and percussionist/vocalist Jason Eskridge, Lang burns through a dozen songs first heard on studio albums dating back to 1997. This time, though, the songs heat up in the kind of pressure-cooker setting that can only take shape in the vibrant Nashville club scene.
