Shelby Lynne fans, step this way: uDiscover has an exclusive video of the great singer-songwriter discussing the newly-available bonus tracks, with producer Bill Bottrell, on the 15th anniversary deluxe reissue of her breakthrough album ‘I Am Shelby Lynne.’
The first disc in the new package includes the whole of the original remastered album (which featured such brilliant tracks as ‘Leavin’,’ ‘Your Lies,’ ‘Gotta Get Back’ and ‘Thought It Would Be Easier’) plus the six previously unreleased bonus tracks recorded at the original album sessions. There’s also a 180 gram vinyl edition in gatefold sleeve with a digital download card for the bonus tracks.
Here’s the video of Shelby and Bill reminiscing about the album sessions, with a taster of some of those unreleased songs:
The widespread acclaim for ‘I Am Shelby Lynne’ helped Lynne, who’d already been recording for many years by that stage, to win the Best New Artist title at the 2001 Grammys.
The DVD in the reissue package consists of a newly-unearthed, 90-minute live performance, ‘Shelby Lynne: Live At The House of Blues,’ recorded at the Los Angeles venue on April 28th, 2000. The album had been released in the UK first, in 1999, and was a recent release in the US at the time of the show in California. The gig also included covers of John Lennon’s ‘Woman’ and Jimmy Webb’s ‘Wichita Lineman.’
Lynne has an upcoming show in Santa Monica, at McCabe’s Guiitar Shop, on December 13, with five further US gigs in February.
