The Crow headed for a Rounder release

Steve Martin - The CrowSteve Martin’s The Crow: New Songs for the Five String Banjo, hitherto available exclusively on Amazon.com will be released on the Rounder Records label on May 19. (Cat. No. 0647)

The Rounder CD will have one extra track – a remixed version of Calico Train – added to the original 15 cuts. All the audio tracks will be remastered prior to the re-release.

The album has been quite popular among banjo enthusiasts, and is likely to reach a much wider audience through this newly-signed agreement with Rounder.
