Great Review for this new EP release by Funzalo/Woodstock Records
Professor Louie & The Crowmatix - The Lost Band Tracks
PROFESSOR LOUIE & THE CROWMATIX/Lost Band Tracks:
Talk about stuff buried so deep in the Sony vaults that it'll never surface even as bonus tracks on a future volume of the Bob Dylan bootleg series...
In 1991, a Columbia producer got the great idea to engineer The Band's comeback by having Jules Shear take the place of Robbie Robertson as the lead writer of the crew. Songs were written, studio time booked, and....nothing. Professor Louie who was involved with those sessions drew together a bunch of the cats that were around those sessions and recreated the original tracks that will probably never be heard again. The result? Pure proof The Band wouldn't have had a 90's career bounce if Louie didn't have his hand on the wheel.
Now we finally know who the real wheel that was on fire was. Even without The Band hook, this is another fine release from a crew that understands what roots rock is all about.
