In April 2005 Chris Whitley and Jeff Lang made good on a decade long promise to record together, resulting in the intensely passionate Dislocation Blues. Working in Lang's home base of Melbourne, Australia, they recorded twelve songs, including new tunes by each artist, some choice Bob Dylan covers and reworked versions of songs from previous releases. Dislocation Blues is a magical recording, bringing together two artists unafraid to tread their own paths, where blues is an emotional reference point but not one which either player is harnessed to or hemmed in by. Sadly, Dislocation Blues would turn out to be among Chris Whitley's last studio recordings. He passed away in November of 2005 at the age of 45.

Featuring: 'Dislocation Blues,' 'When I Paint My Masterpiece' and 'Underground'
