"Crossroad Message" was released 2002 and previously only available in Japan. "Tales From The Bone" was released in 1999 and previously only available on vinyl. Both albums have been remastered with 11 tracks added. Containing everything from the bands first demos dating back to 1996 to the Crossroad Message epic outtake "For The Weak" it's a great collection of Mojobone's own brand of heavy rock.
For those only familiar with 2010's critically acclaimed release "Cowboy Mode" this retrospect gives prominent insight to the evolution of Mojobone and embodies all the trademark ingredients you've come to expect from Mojobone today, the groove, the blues and the doom! Repackaged with brand new artwork, this 28 track journey in heavy rock is a must have for any fan of the mighty riff!
Three Steve Forbert live albums have been released in only a little over five years, which may seem a little excessive for an artist whose concert performances do not match the reputation of the Grateful Dead or Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band.

Live at the Bottom Line, in contrast, released by Forbert's current label, KOCH, is a current look at the singer/songwriter's stage show, dating from a July 8, 2000, performance at the famed New York showcase club.
