Art of the Cover - Benjamin Booker's "Live at Third Man Records" (2015)

Benny-boy takes a tumble.

Yap, Jack White’s label release yet another unique live album, this time from acclaimed New Orleans guitarist/ songwriter Benjamin Booker.

Booker’s Live at Third Man Records was recorded last September, and captures a blistering show from Booker and his band during last year's extensive tour. 

In a statement, the frontman said: 
This record is the result of a year on the road. It’s the best nights of my life and nights I would give anything to take back. It’s sleeping in parking lots and sleeping with people for beds. It’s eating bad food with good folks. It’s makeups and breakups.  
It’s missing home and never wanting to go back.  
Somehow I’m still here. Somehow the boys and I managed to keep things going. We learned from each other. We grew tighter as a band. The songs changed and on the night of September 24th we stepped into that building in Nashville to capture that.  
Thank you Mr. White and everyone at Third Man Records for welcoming me into your home and giving me a chance to share something I’m proud of, the live show.”
