  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Cheersquad Records & Tapes is more than pleased to announce the long-deserved re-release, and first-ever vinyl release of the classic Chris Wilson live album, Live at the Continental.

    The expanded edition of Chris Wilson’s Live at the Continental will be available on double LP (including a limited coloured vinyl pressing) and double CD and released by Cheersquad Records & Tapes on January 22, 2021, just in time for Chris’ 65th birthday on the 24th. The vinyl comes with a free digital download.

    Originally recorded and released in 1994 after Chris had released his first solo album on Mushroom's Aurora label, Live at the Continental is an intimate recording, made at a beloved venue, of the Melbourne blues, country, folk and roots-rock master, accompanied only by long-time sideman Shane O'Mara on guitar, and Australian jazz luminary Jex Saarelaht on piano. The album holds a singular place in a singular career. It is an Australian classic and was the subject of a documentary film that premiered in 2017 at the St Kilda Film Festival.

    The original nine-song CD was expanded with extra material in a low-key fifteen-song independently released double CD back in 2007. That edition has now been remastered with yet more material – seventeen tracks in all - for a new double CD, and, for the first time ever, a vinyl edition. The initial double LP edition will be available in a limited run of yellow and black vinyl, matching the colours of Chris's beloved Richmond Football Club.

    Melbourne’s master blues & roots singer/songwriter/instrumentalist, Wilson was known for his classic solo work as well as his band Crown of Thorns and performances with Paul Kelly & the Coloured Girls, Diesel, Hunters & Collectors, Crowded House, Harem Scarem and punk stalwarts X.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Live at the Continental via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
