Austin Music Meets DVD21 Apr, 2005 By: Brendan Howard
A second wave of music DVDs from New West Records arrives May 10: Lucinda Williams Live From Austin TX, Richard Thompson Live From Austin TX and Son Volt Live From Austin TX.
The DVDs are created in partnership with “Austin City Limits” a PBS live-performance programming staple for more than 30 years. The discs are $19.98 each.
The three new concert DVDs follow last November's launch releases of New West's “Live from Austin TX” series. Those featured performances from Steve Earle, Susan Tedeschi, Robert Earl Keen and The Flatlanders. New West Records, under its release deal with Austin City Limits, can cull from 400 performances in the “Austin City Limits” archives.
The DVDs are remastered and remixed in 5.1 surround sound. New West also releases audio-only CDs to coincide with many of the music DVDs.
