20 years after the release of his debut solo album "Gravity", Americana legend Alejandro Escovedo joins Bob to play songs from his new album "Big Station".

The third in a row to be produced by Tony Visconti (David Bowie, T. Rex), and with the majority of the songs co-written with Chuck Prophet, "Big Station" sees Escovedo looking back to his punk & rock'n'roll roots without losing sight of his country leanings.

Accompanied by guitarist Billy Wight, it's a session not to be missed, and Bob's expert framing of it within the context of Texan music past & present is a real treat.
