We are pleased to present a video premiere of “Back Where I Belong” by Alastair Greene, from his upcoming album, Live From the 805, due out August 17th via Rip Cat Records.

Hot on the heels of Alastair Greene’s critically acclaimed 2017 release, Dream Train, comes his powerful new album, Live From The 805. Recorded in front of a sold out hometown crowd in Santa Barbara, CA, the album celebrates 20 years of Greene’s blues-rock power trio with 20 tracks, including original songs drawn from all five of his studio records as well as a few choice covers.

Alastair Greene has been hailed as one of the best blues rock guitarists of his generation with his band drawing comparisons to Gov’t Mule, ZZ Top, and Cream.

Live From The 805 is a milestone live celebration of twenty years of rocking the blues for Alastair Greene and his cohorts. It’s also another installment in his re-commitment to his own music after stepping down from seven years of adding a blues tinge to the Alan Parsons Live Project, continuing the story told in his most recent studio outing, Dream Train. While Alastair and the band have strong, obvious and impressive roots in the rock world, the twenty songs here, mostly bluesified updates and reprises from Alastair’s accumulated discography, reflect Alastair’s love and affinity for the blues and its offshoots with equal vigor and authority. Shadows of Albert Collins, Albert King, Howlin’ Wolf and many other blues icons run through the music.” Dick Shurman, Blues producer and historian.
