Green Leaf Rustlers have released a cover of The Rolling Stones' "No Expectations" (listen / share). Premiered today by Ultimate Classic Rock and available tomorrow (Friday, January 31) at all DSPs, it's the second single off their forthcoming debut album, a double-LP live set entitled From Within Marin, due March 6. The collection was recorded by legendary Grateful Dead archivist Betty Cantor Jackson at a handful of 2019 shows in Marin County, California.
Comprised by Chris Robinson, Barry Sless, Greg Loiacono, Pete Sears and John Molo, Green Leaf Rustlers are a staple of the live music scene in and around Marin for their re-imagining of country-rock gems by artists like Gram Parsons, Waylon Jennings, The Byrds and more. The band seldom performs outside of North California.
"Green Leaf Rustlers are a Marin County hippie hayride," says Robinson. "Rockin' and rollin' through our favorite classic cosmic country covers and keeping the good people dancing the night away under star-filled western skies."
Indeed, Robinson and company work their way through a set of exhilarating performances, including album opener "Big Mouth Blues," originally by Gram Parsons, an extended take on Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues," the full-tilt choogle of JJ Cale's "Ride Me High" and the album's first single, the American music staple "That's Alright Mama" (listen / share), originally by bluesman Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup.
Green Leaf Rustlers' 'From Within Marin' will be released March 6 on double vinyl with gorgeous gatefold packaging, as well as, digital formats. Pre-orders are available now.
