SWANZEY, NH – September 12 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — In conjunction with Deluge Entertainment, 95North Records has re-released two forgotten Pinetop Perkins releases long out of print. The scheduled re-release date is September 27, 2005. “On Top,” recorded in 1992, features an all-star cast of Blues greats including Jerry Portnoy, Paul Rishell, David Maxwell and Ron Levy. Award winning blues producer Randy Labbe worked on these memorable sessions, adding “This is arguably some of Pinetop’s best work… this recording was received with great critical acclaim when it was released for a short time in 1992.”

Label President Bill Hurley said, “Pinetop Perkins is one of the few remaining great Mississippi blues men, at 92 he is enjoying some of his best critical and commercial success, he is finally being recognized by the music community for his importance and many contributions to the blues.”

The second recording, “Live Top,” is scheduled for release the same day, September 27, 2005. “Live Top” was recorded at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, ME in 1994. Backed by the Blue Flames and keeping in the traditions of blues music it is an entire live set of recorded music and features some classic Pinetop moments. As a bonus there is a twelfth track recorded live the night before the event at the legendary Trade Winds Blues Club in Rockport, ME.
