For over a quarter century, rock and roll's biggest stars have gathered annually on one special evening for an exclusive party: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. Honoring music's most influential figures with the most prestigious of awards, it's also an evening where both artists and fans celebrate rock and roll with once-in-a-lifetime performances. For the first time on vinyl, Time Life has pressed a selection of the most memorable moments in the history of the induction ceremony, previously only available in digital and physical formats.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Live: Volume 2 is a unique, collectible colored 180g vinyl offering featuring an unforgettable "set list" from the biggest names in rock ‘n' roll. Recorded from 1990 through 2006, Volume 2 includes thrilling performances from such music luminaries as Jerry Lee Lewis, The Doors with Eddie Vedder, The Who, Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen & Axl Rose, Stevie Nicks & Lindsey Buckingham, The Young Rascals, Solomon Burke, Marc Broussard, Leela James, John Fogerty and Paul McCartney.
Some of the most compelling moments come from the newly inducted artists themselves, performing the songs that helped get them to that Waldorf stage like Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham’s poignantly simple acoustic take on "Landslide." Bruce Springsteen has been perhaps the most convivial and collaborative of the many superstars who have repeatedly graced the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame stage. He’s the best party guest one could ask for, as evidenced by his performance here with rock front man Axl Rose on the Beatles' "Come Together" at the 1994 ceremony (when John Lennon was inducted as a solo artist). CCR founder John Fogerty, an artist who has also relished these jams, performs "Green River" with Springsteen and Robbie Robertson of The Band. To top it off the set also includes a musical tribute medley to Wilson Pickett.
