Green Leaf Rustlers Celebrate Gram Parsons With “Big Mouth Blues”
“Green Leaf Rustlers are a Marin County hippie hayride,” says Robinson. “Rockin’ and rollin’ through our favorite classic cosmic country covers and keeping the good people dancing the night away under star-filled western skies.”
Green Leaf Rustlers’ third single off debut album, ‘From Within Marin‘ is a super-charged rendition of Gram Parsons‘ classic “Big Mouth Blues“.
Comprised by Chris Robinson, Barry Sless, Greg Loiacono, Pete Sears and John Molo, Green Leaf Rustlers are a staple of the live music scene in and around Marin County. While seldom performing outside of Northern California, their reputation precedes them for re-imagining country rock gems by artists like Townes Van Zandt, Waylon Jennings, The Byrds and more.
For their debut album, Green Leaf Rustlers called upon frequent Robinson collaborator and legendary Grateful Dead archivist Betty Cantor Jackson to record the band live at Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, CA on March 27, 28 and 29, 2018. The resulting 2-LP set finds the ensemble diving deep with a set of exhilarating performances, including an extended take on Johnny Cash‘s “Folsom Prison Blues,” the full-tilt choogle of JJ Cale‘s “Ride Me High,” a country-soul-soaked reading of The Rolling Stones‘ “No Expectations” (listen/share) and the American music staple “That’s Alright Mama” (listen / share), originally by bluesman Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup.
Green Leaf Rustlers’ ‘From Within Marin’ will be released March 6 on double vinyl with gorgeous gate-fold packaging, as well as, digital formats.
