Blue Again DVD - Canterbury?
Another press release on the Jan. 26 release of the Blue Again DVD. I'd thought it was going to be video from the St. Louis show where the CD was recorded, but this new PR says it's from Oct. 25th 2008 at the Marlowe Theater in Canterbury.
(BTW, Christine McVie was at this show -- wouldn't it be fabulous if they showed a glimpse of her?)
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Grammy-nominated Mick Fleetwood (his first ever nomination outside of Fleetwood Mac!) is set to see the release of his Mick Fleetwood Blues Band's "BLUE AGAIN," the companion DVD to their 'Best Traditional Blues' category nominated CD. "Blue Again" contains explosive live performances of the iconic rock drummer and Mac co-founder Mick and his Mick Fleetwood Blues Band featuring guitarist Rick Vito performing classic early Fleetwood Mac songs such as "Albatross," "Oh Well" and "Black Magic Woman" ( a hit for Fleetwood Mac prior to Carlos Santana's version ). The DVD will be released January 26th on 429 Records which is distributed by Fontana/Universal in the U.S. and E1 Entertainment in Canada.

New Live DVD is Companion to Grammy-Nominated 'Blue Again' CD Features Original Compositions and Classic Fleetwood Mac Songs
Mick assembled a top-notch ensemble of blues and rock musicians and released the Grammy-nominated collection of songs on CD and online in the U.S. in early 2009. Debuting at #1 on both the iTunes and Billboard Blues charts, the CD was a critical and commercial success. Produced by Mick Fleetwood and former Fleetwood Mac member Rick Vito, BLUE AGAIN was recorded live at the Marlowe Theater, Friars, Canterbury, Kent England on October 25th, 2008 and sees him teaming up on this recording with guitarist and lead vocalist Vito, bassist Lenny Castellanos and keyboardist Mark Johnstone. It's a scintillating performance that gives the classic songs a vibrant and modern immediacy while also showcasing new songs emphasizing Mick Fleetwood's continuing love of the traditional blues style.
Says Mick: "Over my career I've been called a pop star and a rock star, yet in my inner heart, I will always be part bluesman. On my journey from blues to a life of rock 'n' roll, I've always remembered where I started." BLUE AGAIN is both an original musical tour de force and a respectful tribute to Fleetwood Mac initiated by the sole member of the band to be in every incarnation from the beginning.
