Following the 2013 release of Betty’s S.F. Blends, Volume One and their third full-length album, 2014′s Phosphorescent Harvest, Chris Robinson Brotherhood are back with an exciting double-LP: Betty’s Blends, Volume Two: Best From the West. Taking cues from Volume One, the CRB once again joined forces with Betty Cantor-Jackson, legendary archivist for the Grateful Dead, and allowed her to curate the new live album.

“It’s Betty’s trip, man … we’re just on it,” Chris Robinson gratefully says. “We’re Betty’s house band!”

Set for release on June 2, the double-LP features that were captured throughout the CRB’s 2014 summer tour across the western side of the country; “Shore Power” was recorded at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, California.

“[Volume One] was taken from just one set of shows. This one, Betty recorded … I don’t know how many shows,” Robinson explains. “It’s a bit smaller of a presentation [than Volume One]; it’s only four sides, two pieces of vinyl. And it won’t just be vinyl only — we’re doing 2,000 [double-LP] sets, 2,000 CDs and 2,000 downloads. Everything is limited. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.”
