When Bonnie Raitt’s Silver Lining summer tour stopped at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater in June, Le Mobile was on hand to record the entire concert. After the show, Le Mobile owner and chief engineer Guy Charbonneau mixed one song that will be featured on her newest release, Fool’s Game, which is slated for release on a forthcoming promotional/benefit CD sponsored by the Cities 97 radio station in Minneapolis.
Charbonneau gave a reference CD of his mix to Raitt of his initial mix and, after returning to Le Mobile’s home base in California, he did a second mix incorporating some slight changes requested by the singer. Other tracks from the concert are being archived for possible later mixing and release.
The Cities 97 CD will be released in September. Other artists tentatively scheduled to be on the release include Natalie Merchant, Suzanne Vega, Train and Coldplay. Net proceeds from sale of the CD will benefit charities selected by the station in consultation with the artists.
