In April 2012 I came home from a month of touring in the UK and Europe with Gretchen Peters. We played 30 shows on that tour and by the end we all agreed that a live CD had to be made sooner than later. So after a couple weeks of post-tour resting, with the music still fresh in our heads and hands, Gretchen, Barry and I reunited in Toronto to record a live CD at Hugh’s Room.
Instead of just releasing the CD on its own, Gretchen created a 60 page full color hard cover book of photographs, mementos and essays about the making of the album and the tour. In the front of the book is a sleeve with the live CD. In the back sleeve of the book you get a DVD with an hour long retrospective video and full length performances from the tour. The whole package is beautifully, thoughtfully designed.
As of this week, Woman On The Wheel: Live from the Hello Cruel World Tour 2012: Book/CD/DVD is now available on Gretchen’s website. Here’s a little sneak preview of the DVD.
