4 Nights Of 40 Years Live celebrates 40 years of a life dedicated to music… In rock, blues, soul and R&B.
Singer, guitarist and songwriter Robert Cray, whose career spans from the roots of the blues to the pinnacles of rock, from the 1980s to this moment, grew up listening to the gospel of the Five Blind Boys of Mississippi, Bobby Bland’s soul, Jimi Hendrix’s rock guitar and the Beatles pop sounds.
Those influences and the signature sound that Cray has imprinted on modern popular music are brought together in a new double CD.
Through clips of concerts from the 80s and four recent shows, the evolution of the Cray Band unfolds before the listener.
The Robert Cray Band has won five Grammy Awards, catapulted 15 studio albums into the Billboard Charts, has sold millions of records and toured the globe. They have opened for such luminaries as John Lee Hooker and Eric Clapton.
This title will be released on August 28, 2015.
