Time Life continues their "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Live" series with volume 3. It was released on November 18th and features ten more iconic, one-of-a-kind performances that were performed throughout the years at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremonies. Volume 1 was released on 180-gram purple vinyl, Volume 2 was also released on 180-gram red-orange swirled vinyl and volume 3 follows with black and white marble swirled vinyl.
This release features more live jams compared to the past two volumes. The set kicks off with Carl Perkins performing "Blue Suede Shoes" with a backing band featuring Keith Richards and Paul Butterfield. Stevie Wonder teams up with Joan Osbourne and Keith John for a funky, live version of Marvin Gaye's "I Heard It Through The Grapevine." The other outstanding Hall of Fame jam features blues masters Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt and Robbie Robertson coming together for a rocking short version of "Sweet Home Chicago." One of the most touching songs to appear on any of the volumes is Damien Rice's acoustic version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," which has extra meaning since Cohen's death earlier this month.
This album, and series, are packed with amazing, once-in-a-lifetime performances that definitely deserved a place in your vinyl collection. To find out more about volume 3 of the "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Live" series, please visit timelife.com.
