A remastered version is due out on September 30. Here's the lineup of songs...
Rock And Roll
Black Mountain Way
Your Time Is Gonna Come
Dazed And Confused

AND THE PURSUIT OF MAGIC
AUGUST 9 - A SONG FOR EVERYONE: THE STORY OF CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL
AUGUST 26 - MARCUS KING - YOUNG BLOOD
Marcus King's second solo album gets it's title from the fitting nickname Jaimoe from the Allman Brothers gave him when the now 26 year old rocker was hanging around absorbing everything a youngster could from southern rock bands. The name stuck, and the music sparked the passion and ambition in King to pursue a career in music. After an excellent but comparatively subdued last album, King is rocking again on Young Blood, an album with blistering, grinding, soulfully great guitar work. Recognizable influences include the Allman Brothers, of course, but also ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and others, but King's own style comes through and makes this impressive new album well worth checking out.
