While going through his late father Waylon Jennings‘ belongings, Shooter Jennings discovered a cassette tape labeled “new stuff.” It contained stripped down recordings from the late ’90s, featuring just Waylon and his guitar. Per the Record Store Day website, these recordings were new songs for an album that never came to fruition.
These unheard songs finally see the light of day in time for the holiday shopping season as New Stuff, a Record Store Day Black Friday release.
Shooter restored the recordings for his own Black Country Rock record label. Only 1,500 copies are available on 12-inch colored vinyl. Through Black Country Rock, Shooter serves as archivist and quality control for the music of his famous father and his mom, Jessi Colter. For example, Black Country Rock released the vinyl edition of Colter’s 2017 gospel album, Psalms. Shooter also issues his own music, with collaborators ranging from Billy Ray Cyrus to Marilyn Manson. Other label signees include whiskey rock ‘n’ rollers Hellbound Glory.
