“We wanted the orchestra to become a true part of us for this outing – and not be just a backdrop,” Balsam Range lead vocalist-bassist Tim Surrett tells P&P. “We had to take a bit of a different approach to make it work, but I think the result was worth the effort.”

Professor Louie and The Crowmatix “The Lost Band Tracks” (producer: Aaron “Professor Louie” Hurwitz; first single: “River of Honey”; Hear here; iTunes; On Tour) (Funzalo / Woodstock)

“The Lost Band Tracks,” written and originally recorded in 1991 by Jules Shear and The Band members Levon Helm, Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, Stan Szelest, Jim Weider and Randy Ciarlante, were intended for The Band’s comeback album on Columbia Records.

Longtime The Band cohort, creative aide, producer, engineer and fellow performer Aaron “Professor Louie” Hurwitz was the man behind those original sessions, so it only makes sense he brings them back to life re-recording a number of the Shear / The Band songs collaborations with his group Professor Louie and The Crowmatix.

Shear explained it was producer Rick Chertoff who first called him at his Woodstock home and told him to go cross town and pay a visit to The Band and offer his services as a songwriter. It was 1991, and the remaining members of The Band were trying to convince record labels they could soldier on without Robbie Robertson and Richard Manuel. Chertoff, a fan of The Band, commissioned demos on behalf of Columbia Records and dispensed Shear to meet with them. Sadly, in the middle of the sessions, Chertoff left Sony Music and the tapes sat in limbo.

“It’s like coming full circle for me,” Hurwitz says. “At the time, nobody at the major labels thought The Band could carry on without Robbie. These songs, which they co-wrote with Jules prove that’s simply not true. They were reinventing themselves and now we can hear that.”

Scouting For Girls (U.K. pop-rock band) “Ten Add Ten: The Very Best of Scouting For Girls” (10 new songs, with 10 tracks from their back catalog; On Tour) (Sony Music Entertainment)

Trampolene (U.K. alt-rock trio) “Swansea to Hornsey” (producers: singer-guitarist Jack Jones, engineer Josh Green; Hear here; iTunes) (Mi7)
