GARY CLARK JR. - WRLT-FM Nashville Sunday Night, June 10, 2012 (Flac)


This is not part of the 100 greatest bootlegs but just one of an occasional series of posts showcasing an excellent performance by a highly regarded new artist

I first heard Gary Clark jr a few months ago, it was Third Stone From The Sun that attracted my attention and I was fortunate to avoid all the hype that can be off putting about new artists. I soon learned however that Gary was being touted as the saviour of the blues. See what I mean about hype! Fortunately Gary is much more than a bluesman he incorporates rock, funk and soul into his music and cannot be so easily typecast as belonging to one genre only.
Give this one a try you won't regret it, again the choice is available: instant download or torrent

  1. Excellent post. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is one of the reasons I love this blog. I've heard his name being mentioned somewhere before, but forgot about it, until now. The best way to judge a musician is too see him or her perform live. I dig it! Great show and sound! The rawness of the guitar is especially cool.

  3. Thanks Anon I didn't want to hype it too much.
    I agree with you about your comment about live performance, this recording and the others can only ever be a rough guide to the actual live show. This is some performance though, I'm certainly looking forward to seeing him live when dates are announced for the UK, hopefully sometime in the New Year.

  4. Thank you--he was one of the highlights of the White House blues night

  5. Indeed, it was a pity they never broadcast his performance of
    In The Evening (When The Sun Goes Down)

  6. Wonderful share - I'm really getting into Gary Clark Jr. Thanks for this!
