Announcing Black Ribbons Ultimate Edition!


BlackRibbons_Comp_V2

Shooter Jennings and BCR Los Angeles proudly announce the re-release of his 2010 album Black Ribbons in a limited-edition package that includes vinyl, cd and unreleased tracks. The reissue of the critically-acclaimed music comes in at the perfect time for the genre-breaking, dystopian concept album…Election Day , November 8, 2016.

The limited, special edition re-release will be offered as a package that includes:
– double vinyl LP remastered edition of Black Ribbons
– CD copy of Black Ribbons
– CD copy of previously unreleased, rare and new tracks from Shooter Jennings & Hierophant
– Digital download of Black Ribbons and the bonus material
– New album art and special packaging

Narrated by acclaimed horror author Stephen King, Black Ribbons is a concept album set in the near future, when the U.S. Government has control over the airwaves and a lone radio DJ vows to play the one band the authorities don’t want him to play. The album takes the listener on an incredible multi-genre, anti-establishment infused journey that brings you right back where the album was conceptualized – truth and awakening.

“On Black Ribbons, Jennings illustrates the despair that seems to be the zeitgeist now with dark, densely textured songs,” wrote Meredith Ochs in a review for npr music’s “All Things Considered” when the album was first released. “He borrows heavily from Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers and The Beatles circa Abbey Road.”

“Although his albums with his hard-edged alt-country band the .357s tested the boundaries of mainstream tastes, ’Black Ribbons’ has bypassed those limits entirely, crafting a darkly atmospheric rock concept album about the last voice of true freedom in the land, a freewheeling late-night talk-show DJ called Will O’; the Wisp, voiced by King,” wrote Randy Lewis in the LA Times.

Along with the re-release, Jennings announced a limited series entitled “Beyond The Black,” which takes music lovers song by song through the story of Black Ribbons and how the concepts and theories behind the project still ring true today.

Also, now available are the “Wake Up!” and “I Vote BCR” T-Shirts to help celebrate the new album! Only available at www.bcrmedia.com!

Waylon Jennings and Mick Foley

Waylon Jennings and Mick Foley

Black Country Rock partners with independent record stores nationally and announces two diverse Black Friday releases from country music icon Waylon Jennings and WWE Superstar Mick Foley.

“Louisiana Man, Kentucky Woman” is a collection of three unreleased 70’s-era tracks from Waylon Jennings. Originally intended for an exclusive Navy radio release and recorded at Scotty Moore’s “Music City Records” – these tracks feature Jennings in top form being backed by The Waylors. Of undeniable interest to aficionados of country music and deep cuts, this release will be available on limited-edition white 7″ vinyl on Black Friday.

“Crazy Christmas” is a spoken-word Christmas narrative told by New York Times Best Selling author and Hardcore Wrestling Legend Mick Foley, written by 10-year-old son Hugh Foley, with music and sound effects composed by Shooter Jennings.

“Narrating ‘Crazy Christmas’, the story my youngest son wrote as a gift for Santa Claus, was one of the joys of my life.” Foley said. “We handed our special holiday project off to Shooter Jennings, who took it on a wild and charming ride. I hope this collaboration with Shooter brings listeners the same sense of joy it has brought to me.”

“Crazy Christmas” will be available on limited-edition white 7″ vinyl on Black Friday, as well as available on iTunes beginning December 9, 2014.

Black Country Rock is multi-format record label and a proud supporter of independent music, brick and mortar stores, tangible goods, and advanced technology. To find a record store near you that will be carrying these releases please visit RecordStoreDay.com
