Woodstock-based artists The Weight Band revive the Woodstock Sound on their first full-length studio album. World Gone Mad features eight original songs, including contributions from the late Levon Helm on never-before-released songs written for The Band. The album also includes a special guest appearance by Jackie Greene. Recorded at Clubhouse Studio in Rhinebeck, New York, the album sautes a rich musical style best de-scribed as the "Woodstock sound." A live, raw and rustic American musical tradition is heard throughout the self-produced album, with lyrics reflecting stories of love, humor, and personal journeys.Lead vocals is a job met by all five members of the band. Guitarist and mandolin player, Jim Weider likens their shared vocal duties to the treatment and approach perfected during his 15 years with The Band. "Lead vocals alternate on each song, with members trading off," as evident on "Heat of the Moment" and "I Wish You Were Here Tonight." In addition to Weider, Marty Grebb (keyboards, organ, acoustic guitar, horns), Brian Mitchell (keyboards, organ, accordion), Albert Rogers (bass), and Michael Bram (drums, harmonica) deliver a level of virtuosity and style of performance rarely heard in music today. Jackie Greene (vocals, slide guitar) sits in on "Deal," a dynamic cover of the classic Jerry Garcia-Robert Hunter song. Randy Ciarlante, a former Band and Weight Band member, is also a guest on two songs.
