Jim Lauderdale is releasing two albums simultaneously, Time Flies and Jim Lauderdale And Roland White, August 3 on Yep Roc Records. The two projects are Lauderdale’s 30th and 31st studio albums, and mark his long-awaited return to the Yep Roc roster after a decade.
Jim Lauderdale And Roland White is Lauderdale’s previously unreleased first full-length record, a collection of classic bluegrass recorded in the basement of Earl and Louise Scruggs’ Nashville home in the summer of 1979 and then lost for nearly four decades. Lauderdale was new to town at the time, while White was already a bluegrass legend, known for his mastery of the mandolin and foundation of such iconic groups as The Kentucky Colonels and Country Gazette. The master tapes went missing for 39 years and were only recently rediscovered at the bottom of a box by White’s wife, and the album provides an intimate look into the nascent beginnings of an Americana artist’s vast career.
Time Flies features Lauderdale at his best, writing and performing classic tunes distinctively infused with striking notes of country and soul. The project was produced by Lauderdale and Jay Weaver at Nashville’s Blackbird Studio and House of Blues Studios.
Lauderdale will mark the arrival of both albums with an assortment of upcoming live shows, including headline dates and festival performances such as this Saturday’s Appalachia Rising event at the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, VA (May 19) and a May 31 show at Nashville’s Station Inn.
