It’s a busy time for Clutch, with the release of a live DVD and an expanded edition of the 2007 album From Beale Street To Oblivion, plus live shows. Now they’ve given us two Tracks Of The Day. The band will re-release From Beale Street To Oblivion on July 20. It’s been expanded to 22 tracks, including five songs recorded at the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios in December 2006, plus a further four recorded live in Australia three years ago. There are also covers of Cream’s Politician and Howling Wolf’s You Gonna Wreck My Life.
The double disc DVD, out now, is titled Live At The 9:30. It has a full show at the 9:30 club in Washington, plus a road movie titled Fortune Tellers Make A Killing Nowadays, which follows the band on tour, and also has rare footage and interviews from the early days of Clutch.
UK fans will get the chance to see the Maryland marvels at the High Voltage Festival. They’re on the Metal Hammer Stage on July 25.
Now Clutch are giving away the live songs Let A Poor Man Be and The Regulator at www.pro-rock.com/bonnaroo. As a bonus, there’s also one live track, Last Orbit, there as well from The Bakerton Group, who are Clutch’s instrumental jazz-rock alter ego. Three tracks for free, then. But they’re only there until June 20, and you have to sign up to get ‘em.
