Live From High Fidelity: The Best Of The Podcast Performances Vol. 2
Release date: April 18, 2015
Features unissued live performances from the podcast!
The Live From High Fidelity podcast started out when two overly chatty vinyl obsessives (former A&R man and current music publisher Tom DeSavia and musician/arranger Eric Gorfain) were spurred on by their mutual friend, singer Sam Phillips, to record themselves talking about their recent finds, wish lists, and more. They decided to record the shows live in L.A.’s High Fidelity Records. It has been a highly downloaded podcast for over two years.
Following in the footsteps of last year’s popular release, Omnivore Recordings presents Live From High Fidelity: The Best Of The Podcast Performances, Vol. 2.
This year’s offering contains 11 tracks from 10 artists—only available on this release! Sam Phillips’ theme song is included, as well as live performances from Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), Sean And Sara Watkins (Nickel Creek), John Doe (X), Jill Sobule, Glen Phillips (Toad The Wet Sprocket), The Haden Triplets and Pugwash. Plus, there’s a spoken piece from legendary producer Glyn Johns (whose resume is far too long to list here!)
And, as the podcast takes place in a record store and they spin LPs, this release is also only on vinyl.
Filled with witty banter and stellar playing, Live From High Fidelity: The Best Of The Podcast Performances, Vol. 2 is a music (and vinyl) fan’s dream collection.
