Madjack Records announces the release of Little Red, a new CD/LP from the powerhouse Memphis soul singer Susan Marshall, on April 28, 2009. Recorded during several trips between Memphis and London by Jeff Powell (Afghan Whigs, Primal Scream and Bob Dylan) and Henry Olson (Primal Scream, Beth Orton, and Nico), Little Red further solidifies the often overlooked connection between the soul music of Memphis and the club scene of London. Celebrated author Robert Gordon (It Came From Memphis) writes in the liner notes that “the album conjures Memphis of the 60’s and 70’s while rooted solidly in the present day.”
For her third solo release, the critically acclaimed Marshall teams with Lucinda Williams for a duet of “Don’t Let Me Down,” calls on singer Greg Dulli to back her on “Femme Fatale,” and scores a guest appearance from Al Green’s legendary sideman Teenie Hodges for “Oh My Soul.”
SUSAN MARSHALL fresh as a daisy comin' back from LA is playing 2 CD release shows this weekend ..
.FRIDAY, APRIL 24th at THE WAREHOUSE - 9pm
SUNDAY, APRIL 25th at ITTA BENA - 7pm

Speaking of Soul... It'd definitely do you some good to get out and welcome DAVE GONZALEZ (Hacienda Brothers/Paladins) back to LA with his new band THE STONE RIVER BOYS (feat. Mike Barfield!). I've been lucky enough to see a few shows here in Austin and I'm tellin' you now, you're gonna LOVE it!
BETTER YET ... DEAD ROCK WEST are back for a nano second... FRESH off the heels of a UK tour, Frank and Cindy are in LA for a few days (to do laundry I presume) before they get in the van and take off with Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers! Those of you in the Austin area might want to block out the weekend of May 8th/9th as that Roger Clyne tour kicks off at GRUENE HALL and we're goin' campin'! (see below for more info. on THAT!)
