California’s Midnight North has just released a brand new live album, Selections from the Great American Music Hall, which was recorded during a sold-out show at the legendary San Francisco venue, Great American Music Hall, on Friday, November 3rd, 2017. Midnight North is fronted by guitarists and vocalists Grahame Lesh—son of Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh—and Elliot Peck, and rounded out by bassist/mandolinist Connor O’Sullivan and keyboardist/guitarist/vocalist Alex Jordan.
Selections from the Great American Music Hall features eight of Midnight North’s favorite tracks from that special night, including energetic collaborations with the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir and Phil Lesh, Twiddle‘s Mihali Savoulidis and Ryan Dempsey, and the Northbound Horns—because “horns on the weekends”, according to Bob Weir. The album was recorded on a 48-track rig and was later released as a selection of the evening’s greatest highlights, the follow-up to the band’s 2017 release, Under The Lights.
According to the band’s press release:
The list of highlights on this album is prodigious. We have Midnight North favorites ‘Under the Lights’ & ‘Miss M’ with all new horn arrangements, Mihali rocking Twiddle’s hit ‘Lost in the Cold’ & Bob Weir tuggin’ at our heartstrings with his amazing ‘Only a River’ before leading us through a rollickin’ version of the Grateful Dead’s ‘The Music Never Stopped’ with Phil Lesh. And more!
