Bonnaroo Recalled On CD, DVD

The audio set "Live From Bonnaroo" and the DVD "270 Miles From Graceland - Bonnaroo 2003" will be issued Oct. 21 via Sanctuary.

As eclectic as the festival itself, a two-disc CD release and a DVD commemorating this year's second Bonnaroo music festival in Manchester, Tenn., will showcase everyone from the Dead and Emmylou Harris to Sonic Youth and the Polyphonic Spree. The audio set "Live From Bonnaroo" and the DVD "270 Miles From Graceland - Bonnaroo 2003" will be issued Oct. 21 via Sanctuary.

John Alagia (John Mayer, Keller Williams) produced the 23-track CD compilation. It includes such highlights from the June 13-15 event as the Dead's "Sugar Magnolia," Warren Haynes' "The Real Thing," James Brown's "I Feel Good" and Ben Harper's cover of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing."

Although some of the songs on the DVD mirror those on the CD, there are several artists and selections that are exclusive to the 22-song feature, directed by noted photographer/filmmaker Danny Clinch. Among the acts on the DVD but not the CDs are Tortoise, the North Mississippi All-Stars and Robert Randolph & the Family Band.

"For all my previous films, I was the main cinematographer," Clinch says in a statement, recalling such features as "Pleasure & Pain," his 2002 Harper documentary. "For shooting something of this magnitude -- four stages, 80,000 people -- I hired cinematographers who I could trust to translate the feeling I was trying to capture... a classic hand-held documentary style combined with adventurous framing and point of view."

The film will receive a theatrical premiere Oct. 8 at New York's Ziegfeld Theater.

Sanctuary has previously released two separate Bonnaroo compilations and a DVD stemming from last year's inaugural festival. The two-disc audio compilation and DVD "Live From Bonnaroo Music Festival" featured some of the bigger bands that played, including Widespread Panic, Gov't Mule and Norah Jones. The single "Bonnaroo 2" audio disc followed, featuring lesser-known acts such as the Big Wu, Rana and Mofro.
