Chris Robinson Brotherhood's acclaimed live album series, Betty's Blends, returns with Volume 3: Self-Rising, Southern Blends. Recorded and mixed live from the soundboard by legendary Grateful Dead archivist and recording engineer Betty Cantor Jackson, this latest edition captures the CRB on a Southern swing through Atlanta, Raleigh and Charleston in November 2015.
The 3LP-set includes original staple CRB material like "Clear Blue Sky," "Roan County Banjo" and "Oak Apple Day," but focuses on the band's sprawling selection of cover material ranging from Allen Toussaint's "Get Out Of My Life Woman" to the Leiber/Stoller classic "I'm A Hog For You," to Bob Dylan's "She Belongs To Me" to the Slim Harpo rarity "The Music's Hot."
It also marks the first release in the series with current CRB drummer, Tony Leone. In Robinson's own words, "With Betty, we trust her sonic sensibilities and give her the space and freedom to do what the woman does, and what she does is beautiful and unique. It's the stuff rock n' roll dreams and recordings are made of. Viva la Betty!"
