Cosmic Country




A companion piece to both ‘A Different Kind of Blues’ and ‘Heavy Soul’,  ‘Cosmic Country’ looks at the beginnings of country rock in the late ‘60s and follows its trails through the heady days of the 1970s. It includes tracks both classic and rare from a stunning array of artists, including Gram Parsons, the Byrds, Emmylou Harris, The Band, Bob Dylan, The Grateful Dead, David Crosby, Michael Nesmith, Judee Sill, Gene Clark, The Beau Brummels, Doug Sahm, Townes Van Zandt, John Prine and Kris Kristofferson.

‘Cosmic Country’ features nearly two and a half hours of music and comprehensive liner notes by co-compiler and esteemed UK DJ and compilation producer Dean Rudland (the man responsible for countless classic soul and funk compilations on labels like Blue Note, Kent, BGP and Ace).
