Monday 10pm: LP Lounge with Willie B

Tonight at 10 on RadioMaxMusic.com the LP Lounge goes to prison. We feature two live albums (oddly enough in surround sound). The first is not widely known outside of the Latin community, which is a shame – the 2nd, well, its the second best selling live album in history.

Larry Harlow – Harlow Live In Quad
A classic live event recorded at Sing Sing prison in upstate NY, the sound was captured in 4 channels. The first Salsa recording to utilize the technology that was new at the time. Beyond the innovation, this album was all about the rhythms. A mix of classic Cuba and straight ahead Salsa, Harlow was a genius at crafting a one of a kind sound. Featuring Junior Gonzalez, Justo Betancourt and more on vocals, the level of performance and quality was second to none.

Johnny Cash At San Quentin
At San Quentin is the 31st overall album by Johnny Cash, recorded live at San Quentin State Prison on February 24, 1969 and released on June 4 of that same year. The album was certified gold on August 12, 1969, platinum and double platinum on November 21, 1986, and triple platinum on March 27, 2003 by the RIAA. It is the second best selling live album of all time surpassed only by its conceptual predecessor, “At Folsom Prison”. The album was nominated for a number of Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and won Best Male Country Vocal Performance for “A Boy Named Sue.” There have been several releases with different songs and set order. The album cover photo by Jim Marshall is considered to be an iconic image of Cash, with Marshall Grant’s Epiphone Newport bass guitar famously silhouetted in the foreground. – Wikipedia

Sunday 3pm: RadioMax Special Feature LP: Dave Matthews Band – Come Tomorrow (2018)

Come Tomorrow is the ninth studio album by Dave Matthews Band, and was released on June 8, 2018. The album is their first since 2012’s Away from the World.

Working between tours at studios in Seattle, Los Angeles and Charlottesville, Dave Matthews Band chose to record with several different producers, including John Alagia, Mark Batson, Rob Cavallo and Rob Evans.

Nine of the 14 tracks on Come Tomorrow were played live prior to the official album announcement on April 25, 2018. “Do You Remember” was debuted at Farm Aid in 2017, “Again and Again” appeared on DMB setlists in 2016 as “Bob Law,” “Samurai Cop” had been a regular at Dave solo, Dave & Tim acoustic and full band shows since 2016, “Here on Out” was played live just once before the announcement and that came on the Seasons of Cuba PBS televised special in 2016 with Dave being backed by The Chamber Orchestra of Havana. The band had regularly featured “Black and Blue Bird” and “Virginia in the Rain” at shows since 2015.

The longest-tenured songs on the album, however, are “Can’t Stop” and “Idea of You,” both of which had been in the band’s rotation since 2006.[ An extended version of “bkdkdkdd” was previously performed live under the title “Be Yourself.”
