Highway Butterfly :: The Songs of Neal Casal

Gitarist/zanger/componist/fotograaf Neal Casal was 50 ton hij in 2019 zelfmoord pleegde. Hij liet een groot en indrukwekkend muzikaal oeuvre achter. 14 soloplaten, veel sessiewerk en albums van bands waar hij onderdeel van was zoals Ryan Adams and the Cardinals, Chris Robinson Brotherhood en GospelbeacH. Nu, twee jaar na zijn dood, is er het ultieme eerbetoon aan dit genie. Highway Butterfly: The Songs Of Neal Casal is een drie CD’s/vijf LP’s-box met 41 Casal-nummers uitgevoerd door vrienden, collega’s en fans zoals Susan Tedeschi & Derek Trucks, Steve Earle, Marcus King, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Jonathan Wilson en Hiss Golden Messenger. In het begeleidende boekwerkje vind je alle teksten, foto’s gemaakt door Casal, stickers en nog wat verrassingen. De opbrengst gaat naar de Neal Casal Music Foundation, die geld geeft aan scholen om instrumenten aan te schaffen en aan musici in nood. Highway Butterfly: The Songs Of Neal Casal is een fantastisch document, een groots monument voor een te vroeg overleden briljante muzikant.
