Red Devils, a torrid L.A. blues band. "The difficult decision I was faced with when listening to the tracks I recorded with the Red Devils, and having to choose only one, reminded me what a great band they were," says Jagger. One of the results of that session is Jagger's previously unreleased rollicking version of Sonny Boy Williamson's CHECKIN' UP ON MY BABY. -- Wounded Heart of America, the latest CD by Tom Russell, includes versions of Tom's songs by other other artists and four songs by Tom. Dave Alvin's version of BLUE WING and OUT IN CALIFORNIA from King of California is included. A rare version of HALEY'S COMET by the Texas Tornados is also on the CD. -- The combination DVD/CD for the documentary Camp Burlesque is expected to be released on Oct. 30 on the Bird Song label. Dave Alvin performs PASSION POOL on the CD. The CD/DVD is available for preorder at www.parasol.com. --Am

Dave Alvin & Yep Roc Records are pleased to announce the
beginning of a new series of exclusive digital tracks

on this. Yes, we do find this stuff interesting, but in the end at least we know there isn't really any harm done.
     On 7/7/07 The Blasters and Dave Alvin and the Guilty Men were scheduled to play their separate sets at The Hootenanny Festival in Irvine, CA. Dave arrived a few hours early to watch Phil and the Blasters play. Then Phil hung around a few hours later to catch Dave's set. These actions don't support the 'battling brothers' theory that makes headlines. Dave invited Phil up onstage for MARIE MARIE and SO LONG BABY GOODBYE marking the first time in Blasters history that Dave and Phil sang together.
