Legendary Santana / Journey founding member and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Gregg Rolie has released a limited edition CD of his band in concert in 2007. On this 12-track CD, the Gregg Rolie Band whip up a blistering performance featuring all the beloved Santana hits, as well as tracks from his 2001 critically acclaimed solo CD 'Roots' and a few new songs. Songs include "No One To Depend On", "Jingo", "Evil Ways". "Black Magic Woman", "Soul Sacrifice" and others.
The final track on the CD, "Bailamos El Son", was taken from Rolie's performance on the PBS special Trini Lopez Presents The Legends of Latin Music. Filmed at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles last October, the program will be aired in June 2009.
Celebrating its 40th Anniversary, this year Warner Home Video released a Blu-Ray and DVD Ultimate Collector's Edition with high definition picture and sound of 'Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music', which features two hours of bonus material, some of it newly-discovered extra footage of Santana's historic Woodstock performance included in the package.
Held at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas on March 23rd, along with Santana alumni Michael Shrieve, Rolie resided on a discussion panel of performers, film makers and key technicians who helped create the timeless music classic and Oscar winning 'Best Documentary' Woodstock.
Also, the Gregg Rolie band recently performed at the Hard Rock Cafe New York for the premiere of the new 'Woodstock' DVD / Blue-Ray release. Audience members were treated to a guest appearance by drummer Michael Shrieve during the set.
