'Given' by Kevin Lee Florence
Given , the debut album by singer/songwriter Kevin Lee Florence , shows what a powerful thing it is to have a highly adept artist at the helm and a tremendously talented backing band providing additional instrumentation to that artist's creations. This release, due out on September 16, 2014 from Fluff & Gravy Records , has a handful of notable qualities, but mostly that its songs are well-written and nicely executed offerings which get better with each listen.

Across the Great Divide: The Band, "Endless Highway" from Before the Flood
By the time "Endless Highway," a never-before-released Robbie Robertson meditation on the awful rigors of touring, appeared as part of this raucous tour document with Bob Dylan, the Band had been batting it around for some time.

Across the Great Divide: The Band, "Don't Do It"...
A Motown song given this distinctive half-time feel by Levon Helm, the Band's "Don't Do It" shared little - not even a title, really - with Marvin Gaye's ancestral original.
