Album: British Live Performance Series
Release date: Sep. 18, 2015
Los Angeles-based label Rainman Records has announced the "British Live Performance Series," an eclectic mix of artists captured live in England. Recorded between 1979 and 1991, the series will cover a wide array of artists and music styles including classic rock, pop and contemporary hitmakers. The first album, out September 18, is a live show from the iconic country singer Glen Campbell. DVDs of most shows will become available as well.
"We're excited to be bringing these U.K. shows to a U.S. audience," says Rainman Records president Ron Rainey. "When I first heard these recordings, I knew immediately we had to release them. They deserve to be heard."
The Glen Campbell project is the now-retired legend's first live album in 14 years, and was recorded in 1990 at the Dome in Doncaster, England. Backed by the Jeff Dayton Band, it features his biggest hits like "Rhinestone Cowboy" and "By The Time I Get To Phoenix." The inclusion of Paul McCartney's worldwide chart-topper "Mull Of Kintyre" allows Campbell to show off his instrumental prowess...on the bagpipes! In complete contrast, Jimmy Webb's "Highwayman" and Ralph McTell's "Streets Of London" are performed solo, with simple guitar backing.
