One of my very favourite live albums is Live At The BBC by Jess Roden. This man should have been a huge star.
Anyway there is a Jess Roden anthology coming out called Hidden Masters and CD5 is packed with previously unreleased live tracks by Jess Roden from 1966 (with Alan Bown) to the glory days of the mid seventies to his come back in 1996.
Click for a track listing of Hidden Vaults on Jess Roden’s main website.
The 5 cd anthology is limited to 950 copies and it’s only available through PledgeMusic.com.
You can sign up and hear a previously unreleased Jess Roden track called Song 3 which shows off his “light soul/blues” style but he can also rock and funk out with the best.
There’s a parallel universe where Jess Roden was the biggest rock star in the world in the 1970s and he’s still selling out arenas and stadium. That’s what he deserved.
Hidden Masters Has Reached Its Pledge Target
I’m really pleased to report that Hidden Masters has reached the minimum pledge target so the production of the album will go ahead.
I don’t know how long it’s going to take but I’m really looking forward to getting my copy.
