After a dozen acclaimed albums, virtuoso slide guitarist, and bandleader Sonny Landreth decided the time was right for an career-spanning double-live album. Recorded Live in Lafayette is a 16-song opus that covers more musical ground than any single album ever could. Here, the King of Slydeco’s work stretches and twists across 93 minutes of full-band acoustic, and electric bottleneck lightning. For most of the acoustic set, Landreth played the striking guitar that appears on the album cover. “It’s a Larry Pogreba ‘hubcap’ resonator,” he explains. The guitar was a gift from Mark Knopfler, who played a similar model on “Creole Angel” from Landreth’s South of I-10 album. “For these songs, it appealed to me because it was bright and had some air to the sound, and it compressed in a way I really like.”
