Dave Mason makes a timeless offer

Despite his achievements, Dave Mason remains one of the most, even criminally, underrated rock artists. To mention just a few of contributions to the canon, it’ll be suffice to recall “Feelin’ Alright” that Dave wrote for TRAFFIC, a band he was a co-founder of, and that was a hit for Joe Cocker and GRAND FUNK; introducing George Harrison to a slider ways and playing on the ex-Beatle’s “All Things Must Pass”; as well as playing “All Along The Watchtower” to Jimi Hendrix and laying down a 12-string part for the American’s version of Bob Dylan’s classic. That’d be enough if there wasn’t more feats and an array of brilliant solo records. The latest of these, “Future’s Past,” is to be out in May but can be obtained as a pre-release on Mason’s website from March 3rd.

Bought this way, the album’s physical copy will be accompanied by its digital download and an exclusive bonus download of “Dave Mason Live At Belmont Park 1978,” previously available only as a soundboard bootleg recording. The album itself is comprised of freshly coined numbers and fresh cuts of classic compositions such as TRAFFIC’s immortal “Dear Mr. Fantasy” and “Come On In My Kitchen” by Robert Johnson. A treat, indeed.
