Music was a solace for Chris Robinson long before he and his brother Rich formed The Black Crowes . “Being a little weirdo, outsider, dyslexic kid from the Deep South in the early ’70s, to me music and art was an oasis away from everybody,” he says. When the brothers dissolved their longtime band for good a few years ago, Chris formed the Chris Robinson Brotherhood with guitarist Neal Casal and others. This band plays what Robinson has come to call “California music” — a psychedelic, roots-oriented style that only improves live.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood has detailed the latest installment in their Betty’s Blends live album series. The 3-LP/2-CD Volume 3: Self-Rising, Southern Blends features recordings mixed live from the soundboard by renowned Grateful Dead engineer Betty Cantor-Jackson and comes out on Silver Arrow Records on May 5th.

Featured among the 13-track set are performances captured during The CRB’s November 2015 Southeastern run in Atlanta, Georgia; Raleigh, North Carolina and Charleston, South Carolina. The first Betty’s Blends release to feature new drummer Tony Leone showcases CRB originals such as “Roan County Banjo,” “Oak Apple Day” and “Clear Blue Sky & The Good Doctor,” as well as covers like Bob Dylan’s “She Belongs To Me” and Allen Toussaint’s “Get Out Of My Life Woman,” among others.

“With Betty, we trust her sonic sensibilities and give her the space and freedom to do what the woman does, and what she does is beautiful and unique,” said frontman Chris Robinson in a statement. “It’s the stuff rock n’ roll dreams and recordings are made of. Viva la Betty!”
