'The Essential GARY LUCAS - UK album release show'

Drawing on a wealth of material including rare and never-before released tracks, the double album offers ample evidence of this maverick artist’s trailblazing and unique career, going back to his earliest appearances on record and stage with Captain Beefheart (Don Van Vliet) in the early 80’s which put him on the musical map, to his groundbreaking work with the amazing Jeff Buckley (Gary co-wrote and played on Jeff’s anthems “Grace” and “Mojo Pin”), through his extensive cross-genre legacy of 30-plus albums in his own right, albums which cover the waterfront creatively.

Everything from psychedelic rock, world music excursions (30’s Chinese pop, Hungarian Folk, Blues Raga and more) to film music, classical, electronica, jazz, blues, avant-garde, you name it-- Lucas has nailed it-- his virtuosic guitar and bluesy spirit unifying it all.

This album brings together Gary’s favorite tracks—nearly 160 minute of music—and provides a much needed over-view of the man cited by Rolling Stone as “One of the best and most original guitarists in America...a modern guitar miracle."

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Gary’s band Gods and Monsters, and the 25th
anniversary of Jeff Buckley’s “Grace” album, so it’s a very good time for a Lucas retrospective.

Hard to categorize or pigeonhole, GARY LUCAS is his own man and artist, as this deluxe compilation proves again and again.

Special guests include Jeff Buckley, Alan Vega (Suicide), David Johansen (NY Dolls), Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads), Ernie Brooks (Modern Lovers), Billy Ficca (Television), Nona Hendryx (Labelle), Chinese star Feifei Yang, French diva Elli Medeiros, avant-legend Mary Margaret O’Hara, Cuba’s #1 dance band Los Van Van, UK dub-master Adrian Sherwood, singer Rolo McGinty (The Woodentops) and others.

GARY LUCAS continues to record and tour the world as much as possible, and has performed in over 40 countries to date.
