Jeffrey Dean Foster - Rarities Collection

studio and live tracks
web streams (various sources)

Jeffrey Dean Foster: a name to know for quality rock, Americana, singer-songwriter

Jeffrey Dean Foster is a Winston-Salem, N.C. musician known for his work in The Right Profile, The Carneys and The Pinetops. Now, he's becoming known as a talented solo artist. His new album, The Arrow -- recorded with Mitch Easter and Don Dixon -- is coming in November (see below). This rarities collection is in two parts: Part 1 contains the unreleased EP by The Carneys, 1000 Nights and Counting (excellent roots rock, well-played) plus a similar-sounding solo track; Part 2 features a much more mellow live set by Jeffrey, in solo singer-songwriter mode, at a Chapel Hill club in 2012. The live set is an audience recording.

Sound quality: variable (VG- to VG+)

THANK YOU to The Carneys, JDF, Jesse Knight, and Will Safrit for sharing.
