Various Artists: Red, Hot and Regal

Red, Hot and Regal was the July 2009 Mojo magazine cover disc. It supposedly tracks the "roots, friends and influences" of The Kings of Leon, who according to the front cover are "the world's biggest band." Take that with a pinch of salt.

The CD "reflects the grand eclecticism and rootsical (sic) passion of the four siblings behind this world conquering band". It's not clear whether the Kings of Leon or Mojo decided on their roots and influences.

Track 7 is "Daniel and The Sacred Harp" (Alternate Take) by The Band from the Stage Fright remaster.

QUOTE: "The Followhills unorthodox childhood, travelling the South state to state, wherever their father's work led, may have been perfect training for a life in rock & roll but a strict parental code (no TV, no R-rated movie, church music only) meant they heard little rock. One exception was the southern gospel / backwoods country of The Band. This tale of Old Testament propehcy would have met with family approval."

Which doesn't actually say among the "may have been" and "would have met" whether they ever heard it. No one heard the alternate take outside the Band circles until 2002 that's for sure. Still, The Band sit comfortably on a fine cover disc with Woody Guthrie, Tampa Red, Bukka White and (sittin' in the backseat listening to) Little Willie John.
