The third live release from IIIrd Tyme Out, Round III At The Mac, should be available soon from the band at live shows, or from their online store.
As we reported late last year, this performance was recorded at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonburg, KY, commonly known as “The Mac,” in November of 2005. The show was captured for both audio and video, and while the DVD release seems to be a few months off, the audio CD is expected any day now.
Like the band’s past few projects, the new live CD is released on their own label, Chateau Music Group. Radio promos will go out as soon as they are received from the duplicators, and show hosts can contact Chateau to be make sure they are on the distribution list.
Two previous live shows have been successful audio CD releases for IIIrd Tyme Out, both recorded in this same venue. It looks like they are following a similar formula with the latest MAC CD, mixing older bluegrass favorites with some new songs, and even re-cutting a couple of 3TO tracks from earlier releases.
The band hopes to not only complete editing and post-production for the live DVD this year, but start in on a new studio project as well. We’ll post more details as we find them.
