I love vinyl records. I LOVE them. I love how they feel, how they look, and especially how they sound. The past few years I’ve been digging through bins and shelves and am very proud of the collection that grows in my room. So much in fact that I would love to share it you! So with nothing left to say, let’s see what spinning in Bootsy’s Box of Records!
Do you know The Iceman? Have you heard the voice that belongs to Mississippi born Jerry Butler? A key member in The Impressions, Jerry Butler is behind some of the best love songs to come out of the 60s. The Iceman Cometh(’68) is Jerry Butler’s 11th studio album, and it is side-to-side one of my favorite records right now. On top of how great it sounds, the record comes with a fantastic signed photograph of the Iceman.
And yes folks the music sounds as good as he looks. Here’s the song “Never Give You Up” featured on Side 2 on The Ice Man Cometh.
Hope you enjoyed that! Tonight Dirty Bourbon is kicking the second half of our summer tour off in Belmar, New Jersey at Tenth Ave. Burrito! Showtime is 10pm, see y’all there!
Y’all hear about this one yet? A new top secret Wu-Tang album has surfaced… And get this… They will only be selling one copy of it to the highest bidder…
Apparently the RZA has already been offered 5 mil for it. You can already peep a 51 second sample of the album (which oddly enough, features Cher) on Forbes.com. It was produced over a 6 year period by Cilvaringz under “the tutelage of the RZA”, and is currently being held in a vault in the Grand Mansour in Marrakesh.
We’ve been keeping our lips sealed about this for quite some time now, and are super excited to finally announce the big news: today we’re launching a Kickstarter funding campaign to help produce our brand new studio album (coming in the spring of 2015)! Producing a top-notch record is a very costly endeavor. We want the end result to be something of true quality and as special as our fans are to us. Head over to our project page on Kickstarter to learn more about the new album and how any funds raised will be used to create the record…plus, we’ve got some pretty fun backer rewards to peruse as well! Think backstage meet and greets, free digital and/or physical copies of the new album, shout outs in the liner notes and other such goodies. Thank you for your continued support of our creative process. We couldn’t do it without you and greatly appreciate your consideration to pitch in on the project and help spread the word!
That’s right folks! You read it correctly! DBRS is releasing a free full-length album tomorrow! The album will be made available exclusively on our dbrs.bandcamp.com site for free (or, leave behind a little gift if you want! hint hint!) for the next 30 days. A limited edition hand-signed 180 gram vinyl will follow in the spring. Also, to celebrate, we’ll be playing a special New Years Eve show at the Maison on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans tomorrow night at 10pm.
So, whatchya gonna do tomorrow? Go to dbrs.bandcamp.comand download our new album for free, then come see us do it live and in person at the Maison. Not a bad way to bring in the new year at all we’d say. Oh, and we almost forgot – you can preview two of the album’s tracks you’ll be downloading tomorrow right here right now:
It is time for yet another chapter in the rich and ever-transforming history of the Dirty Bourbon River Show. On December 31st, 2013 we will be releasing our 8th studio album - “Accordion Anthology” – via digital download on our Bandcamp Site. A special edition 180 gram vinyl will follow. Produced by Buck Johnson and the Hootenanny Kid and recorded in New Orleans over a five year period at Piety St. Studios, The Music Shed and Loyola University, “Accordion Anthology” features a new accordion-based arrangement of one song from each of DBRS’s past studio albums, intertwined with new, unheard, unreleased material.

Fulfilling our promise of releasing 2 LP’s a year for our 1st four years as a band, this 8th studio album and the accompanying live show at the Maison marks yet another great achievement in the history of the Dirty Bourbon River Show. We can’t wait to share it with you. Ad Astera per Apera.
