Ben Harper drops new double CD and picks up road dates





Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals plan to take the United States hostage in the year 2001. March 13 they will release a double live album, and help spread the word, they will launch a cross-country tour kicking off February 2 in Boston. The new CD will most likely be called Live and will feature various live tracks from the Burn to Shine LP.


"We multitrack every show to a 24-track [board]. ... It will be a well-rounded representation of the music that I make," Harper recently said of the project. Expect a mix of full band electric material as well as some solo acoustic goods. The 2 disc set is being overseen by Harper and his longtime producer, J.P. Plunier, and we can expect a complete track listing soon.
