Leftover Salmon and Cracker to Release Collaborative Album, _ Oh Cracker Where Art Thou?_
A new album featuring Leftover Salmon and Cracker will be released May 20th on Pitch-A-Tent Records. Titled Oh Cracker Where Art Though?, the disc includes reinterpretations of Cracker songs such as Eurotrash Girl, Ms. Santa Cruz County’ and Sweet Potato. Crackers David Lowery and Johnny Hickman add vocals to all of the tracks, while Leftover performs the music. We hung around the studio for two nights and jammed like the old days when you have a bunch of friends over to jam,’ says Lowery. I’ve played these songs hundreds of times, so Leftover Salmon’s twists made the songs totally fresh to me.
The musicians first collaborated last summer, when they performed a version of Eurotrash Girl, which was met with positive response and inspired the recording sessions.
