Smoke Notes

Legendary musician and rock icon, Levon Helm will be releases his second solo album. As with 2007's 'Dirt Farmer', multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell, took the reigns as producer. 'Electric Dirt' again finds Levon steeped in tradition in his connection to the land and those who live by it, and at the same time goes deeper and fuller in painting a musical canvas by incorporating some gospel, blues and soul with a wide range of original compositions and eclectic cover songs.
The album starts off with a rousing rendition of The Grateful Dead's 'Tennessee Jed' moving on to a beautiful stripped down version of Happy Traum's 'Golden Bird'. 'Growing Trade', written by Levon Helm and Larry Campbell tells a deeply heartfelt story of a farmer's struggle to preserve his livelihood and the rousing horn arrangements by Allen Toussaint and the Levon Helm band on 'Kingfish' written by Randy Newman, brings the swagger of New Orleans to the forefront.
Available from July 6th
