Folk legend Eric Andersen releasing comp

Eric Andersen’s impressive career and his 75th birthday will be celebrated with the compilation The Essential Eric Andersen, due March 30 via Sony Legacy and Real Gone Music. The 33-track CD or 42 track digital-collection features music recorded between 1964 and 2006, and guest musicians on these songs include Joni Mitchell, David Bromberg, Leon Russell, Joan Baez, Richard Thompson, Rick Danko, Lou Reed, and Phil Ochs. This compilation will be the first release of Andersen and Phil Ochs’ duet on “Plains of Nebrasky-o,” and the first release of Andersen and David Bromberg’s cover of Merle Haggard’s “Mama Tried,” which was recorded in 1971. The comp also comes with liner notes by Andersen himself and Anthony DeCurtis (author of Lou Reed: A Life).
