Name : Steven Wilson: Drive Home
Year : 2013
Genre : Progressive Rock, Jazz Fusion
Artist : Steven Wilson (vocals, keyboards, guitars, bass guitar on "The Holy Drinker"), Nick Beggs (bass guitar, backing vocals, Chapman Stick on "The Holy Drinker"), Guthrie Govan (lead guitar), Adam Holzman ( keyboards), Marco Minnemann (drums), Theo Travis (flutes, saxophones, clarinet)
In February Steven Wilson released The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories), his third solo album. The album was a huge critical and commercial success, earning numerous 5 star reviews and charting well across the world, debuting at # 3 in the German national chart, # 28 in the UK top 40, # 57 in the US Billboard top 200 # 16 in Holland and # 17 in Finland.
Steven assembled a virtuoso band to record the album and subsequently embarked on a successful world tour. The band, currently made-up of Guthrie Govan (guitar), Adam Holzman (keyboards), Theo Travis (flute / sax), Nick Beggs (bass / stick), and Chad Wackerman (drums), are back on tour throughout October and November playing an extensive run of European shows. Chad, who was Frank Zappa's longest serving drummer, has replaced Marco Minnemann, who played on the album and on the previous tour.
The Blu-ray and DVD feature the new video for lead track 'Drive Home' along with the video for 'The Raven That Refused To Sing', both directed by Jess Cope. They also include four tracks recorded live in Frankfurt during the recent tour. The Steven Wilson mini-site features the promo video, live excerpts, a making of documentary and more.
In addition, the Blu-ray and DVD feature audio recordings of two previously unreleased tracks, 'The Birthday Party' and an orchestral version of 'The Raven That Refused To Sing'. 'The Birthday Party' was recorded in LA at the same sessions as the tracks that made up the album while the version of 'The Raven That Refused To Sing' is a new mix that strips the track back to just the orchestra and vocals.
All the songs on the Blu-Ray and DVD are mixed in both stereo and 5.1 sound, including the two audio only titles. The audio on the Blu-Ray is full lossless 96/24 throughout. These tracks are also included on the CD, along with the audio from the live tracks and an edit of 'Drive Home'.
