Marley's Ghost New Release for 25th Anniversary

(Sub) Marley's Ghost celebrates its 25th anniversary with the release of Jubilee, which will be released by Sage Arts on June 5th.

The album, produced by legendary Nashville cat Cowboy Jack Clement and recorded at the city's venerable Sound Emporium, which Clement built, features guest performances from Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Old Crow Medicine Show, Marty Stuart, Larry Campbell, Byron House and Don Heffington.

"One of the things that we were really clear on with this record was that we wanted it to be a Marley's Ghost album with friends sitting in, not guest stars with us as the backing band," Wheetman explains. "And it worked."

Like its nine predecessors, Jubilee is wildly eclectic, its 13 tracks drawn, with unerring taste, from the songbooks of Kris Kristofferson ("This Old Road"), Levon Helm ("Growin' Trade"), Bobby and Shirley Womack ("It's All Over Now"), Katy Moffatt and Tom Russell ("Hank and Audrey"), John Prine ("Unwed Fathers"), Butch Hancock ("If You Were a Bluebird") and Paul Siebel (the closing "She Made Me Lose My Blues"), along with the traditional "Diamond Joe." These deftly interpreted tunes blend seamlessly with the six originals on the album.
