Leftover Salmon: 20 Years Down River

As part of celebrating Leftover Salmon's 20 year anniversary, we're giving away a double-album full of 28 live tracks starting in 1991 and taking us right up to 2009. Selecting, mastering and organizing the material fell largely on the shoulders of Leftover Salmon manger John Joy, who along with band archivist Chad Staehly and Eric Abramson, who did the Leftover Salmon Years In Your Ears DVD, narrowed it down from hundreds - if not thousands - of songs to bring this live compilation to life. Special thanks is also due to James Tuttle who mastered the final selections at Airshow Mastering.

"It sure has been a trip!" said Vince Herman about listening back to the first eight songs we're offering, all from 1991-1994. Surprised by how rock & roll the young band sounded, Herman explained that, "It just seemed like the places we were playing and the crowds we were playing to, it was more of a rock & roll kind of crowd in the early days, and bluegrass was something kind of new to 'em, in the bar scene anyways. So I guess we probably leaned a bit more towards the rock & roll than straight ahead bluegrass like we played in the Left Hand String Band or the jug band and the Cajun stuff of the Salmon Heads."

Vince Herman was interviewed about the 20 Year compilation by Cal Roach.
