The sessions were filmed in front of an intimate live audience and allows the viewer into the recording studio with the band. Songwriting sessions are revealed and lots of never before seen banter and behind the scenes footage is shown.
Chris Robinson had this to say about the Cabin Fever sessions: "I think we fulfilled a musical commitment to continue on the golden road of artistic independence. Approaching 20 years into our careers, we still are ambitious enough to push ourselves to create something unique that we have never done before." $14.98

The New Mastersounds - Ten Years On CD - Ten Years On presents an impressive range of grooves and styles along with the familiar vintage-sounding production, courtesy of guitarist and bandleader Eddie Roberts. The album has guests aplenty, some of them sending in their performances by email from distant shores. Dan "JD73" Goldman plays Rhodes on Dusty Groove, lending it a distinctly Headhuntersish sound. Seattle-based sax experimentalist Skerik adds dark, lush textures to the eight-minute soundtrack opus OOOM. Fellow Leeds luminary Sam Bell brings the percussion to Eddie's Benson-eque disco-jazz on Cielo while Madrid-based Chip Wickham toots a mean flute on Chocolate Chip. The vocal contribution on the record comes from Grace Potter who joins the band on a funked-up cover version of her own tune Nothing But the Water (II). $15
Corinne West - The Promise CD - The music of Corinne West doesnt really fit in any genre box. Depending on the listener, Corinnes music might get called roots, Americana, or even progressive folk. There are echoes of rural towns, honky-tonks, roads traveled, and roads less traveled. Listen more closely and there are traces of Appalachia and Ireland, the Opry and the Apollo, and somehow the pure elements of a starry night. It is elegant new sexy acoustic jazz-rock-folk. It is west coast acoustic-soul music. By any name, her music is absolutely compelling both in the strength of her writing and the expressive power of her voice. The Promise has provocative lyrics, great accompaniment, and singing that quickens the heart. At the center of it all is Corinnes voice. She sounds like honey, smoke and sunrise. Its a voice you want to hear closely - theres integrity in it and each time you press ''play'' you have placed yourself in the best seat in the house. Corinne West tours North America and the UK continuously performing 200+ dates annually. $13.98
Peter Rowan - Texican Badman CD- While credited solely to Peter Rowan, Texican Badman could safely be called a Peter Rowan/Jerry Garcia album supported David Grisman, Flaco Jiminez, John Kahn and fellow Grateful Dead member Bill Kreutzman among others.

Rowan then moved on to Seatrain before forming Old & In The Way with Garcia, Kahn and Vassar Clements. Writer of Panama Red for the New Riders of the Purple Sage, Rowan continues to tour constantly to this day. $14.98
