Let’s rewind to November 25, 1976, on Thanksgiving Eve. The iconic group, The Band, were joined by Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Dr. John, to name a few. This was going to be the official “Farewell Show” in San Francisco (Winterland Ballroom) for the Canadian/American quintet: Helm/Danko/Robertson/Hudson/Manuel.
"Goin' To Chicago" was written and famously recorded by Count Basie and Jimmy Rushing. This recording sees the timeless classic tackled by VAN MORRISON, his incredible studio ensemble and long time collaborator Georgie Fame who shares lead vocals. The resulting track is five minutes of gloriously transportational roadtrip blues music.
VAN MORRISON has released a video for his recording of the Sam Cooke classic "Bring It On Home To Me, a song from his new album ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES, due out September 22 on Exile/Caroline. The video was shot at a one-off gig this past July at London's Porchester Hall in front of a captive audience.
