Captured during recent live performances, the four bonus songs are John Hiatt's "Ridin' with the King," Jimi Hendrix' "Red House," Robert Cray's blues classic "Back Door Slam," (from which the band took their name) and the Doors' "Been Down So Long." The video—of the song "It'll All Come Around"—was shot and edited by the band's record producer Dave Armstrong. Back Door Slam's Blix Street Records debut CD, ROLL AWAY, was released last summer.
The group is currently on a nationwide tour of the U.S., which includes upcoming appearances at the popular Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, the Jackson Hole Jazz & Heritage Festival, the Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival and an encore appearance at the Austin City Limits Festival.
Additional club and concert dates are also scheduled through the end of September.
