Fresh Biscuits! New Releases For October 21, 2014

It’s a big week in Blues for new releases. There’s a terrific new disc from Otis Clay & Johnny Rawls which we reviewed here, along with new music from Lisa Mills, Rory Block, and HowellDevine.

The Sean Costello Memorial Fund for Bipolar Research put together a set of previously unreleased tracks Sean recorded with Paul Linden, Melvin Zachery and Ray Hangen at The Magic Shop in New York. The producer Steve Rosenthal and the distributor, VizzTone, are donating all proceeds to the the The Sean Costello Memorial Fund. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of In the Magic Shop will go to support research at a rehab facility dedicated to creative people with co-occurring illness. So beyond the music there are great reasons to pick up a copy of this new release.

Lastly, there’s the Deluxe Edition reissue of one of the greatest live albums of all time – Rory Gallagher’s Irish Tour ’74. This new set has 8 discs, complete shows from the tour and 43 unreleased tracks. I had to order it from Amazon UK. It seems the US is only getting a paltry¬†2CD version of the full Cork show. I can’t wait to get the box set and we’ll publish a review once it lands in my hands.
