Grayson Capps: South Front Street
Artist: Grayson Capps
Title: South Front Street
Label: Royal Potato
Product Type: VINYL LP
Double vinyl LP pressing. 2020 release. Grayson Capps' South Front Street is a 16-song retrospective of the acclaimed South Alabama singer-songwriter's career, compiled by his wife and longtime musical foil, Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer, Trina Shoemaker. More than just a standard Best Of compilation presenting Grayson Capps most popular work, Shoemaker selected songs that have personal significance in their journey together. She titles the collection South Front Street, named after the street where Capps lived in an abandoned shotgun house amid an assortment of outsiders and ne'er-do-wells that he credits as the inspiration for finding his voice as a songwriter. Taking it one step further, Shoemaker revisited each of the original recordings, remixing many of the songs from scratch, essentially presenting them here anew. Some of Capps best known work will be heard for the first time in their studio incarnations by many of even Capps most devout fans.
