Northport, NY (PRWEB) July 07, 2011
Eric Lindell’s "West County Drifter" (MC-0067) marks the first release by the roots rocker for M.C. Records. It's Eric's first national release in over two years.
American Roots Music Since 1991!
Eric Lindell’s "West County Drifter" (MC-0067) marks the first release by the roots rocker for M.C. Records and his first national release in over two years. Special guests include Delbert McClinton, Peter Joseph Burtt and Ivan Neville. "West County Drifter" combines two self-released titles by Eric, "Cazadero" (2011) & "Between Motion and Rest" (2010). Neither title was ever presented to retail or serviced to media or radio.
Tour stops over the next two months include, Austin, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, San Diego, Tampa and Philadelphia.
"West County Drifter" is chock full of all the elements that has made Eric a Roots Music star since his 2006 Alligator Records debut: great original songs, soulful guitar playing, right on singing and a tough and tight band. Sessions for this generous 18 track double disc set were recorded where Eric was born and raised in Northern California and his adopted hometown of New Orleans. West County Drifter is a mostly original affair with choice covers. Included are two by Curtis Mayfield, “Find Another Girl” and “It’s So Hard To Believe.”

"West County Drifter" confirms what The Chicago Sun-Times wrote about Eric, "a tremendous talent with a poet's soul, Lindell writes from the heart with a fully realized musical vision." All songs on the release were produced by Eric Lindell.
