Dickey Betts’ Gig With Jack Bruce And Mick Taylor Restored In Full

Given the duration of Dickey Betts‘ career, the quotient of his concert albums to studio platters is rather substantial, yet there’s not enough recordings made in the ’80s, and surely none of the guitarist’s on-stage documents seems as impressive as “Live From The Lone Star Roadhouse: New York City 1988” because the evening preserved for posterity there saw the appearance, alongside him, two veterans of even great stature, Jack Bruce and Mick Taylor, as well as his a member of his own ensemble, Warren Haynes, and Rick Derringer. First released in 2018 as a double vinyl, this longplay contained only half of what was performed on that date – but now, soon after Dickey’s passing, its complete cut will be issued.

Added to the previous edition are no less than seven pieces, bringing the number of tracks from Dickey’s then-latest “Pattern Disruptive” album delivered on that night to eight out of ten, to complement ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND classics, plus CREAM and Derringer perennials, and extend the record’s length to two hours, and it’s this version that debuts on August 9th on CD and as a digital download. A fitting testament to the fallen hero.
