Center Satge-right where he Belongs

How appropriate are titles to albums, songs, bands…..sometimes they are just perfect. In this case for my tastes, I think the hammer hit that snail square. Tommy Emmanuel c.g.p. has a new live album out today called “Center Stage” and that is the live setting feel gives the listen who has never seen him perform a look, well listen anyways, into the treat it truly is. Released on Favored Nations, this Live 2 CD set (with a DVD coming mid summer) is as intimate as a recording can be, and is a great blend of some new tracks and some fan favotires for previous FN releases. The four new tracks are introduced as: “Ruby’s Eyes”, “Jolly Swagman”, “Lenny Bro”, and “Papa George” (inspired by the legendary Sir George Harrison. This summer there will be a DVD released mixed in 5.1 Dolby Digital sound & filmed in that eye-grabbing High Definition. Both the CD and the DVD contain extra performances of Tommy’s that were not originally part of the “Sierra Center Stage” PBS television program.
