Rich Robinson has never gotten the credit he deserves as one of the driving creative forces (along with older brother Chris) behind The Black Crowes. But over the past few years the younger Robinson, already an acclaimed guitar player, has proven himself to be a terrific songwriter and vocalist in his own right.

Rich Robinson CDEarlier this year, Robinson impressed with third full-length “The Ceaseless Sight” and he’s right back at it with dynamite live offering “Woodstock Sessions, Vol. 3.” Recorded over the summer before an intimate studio audience. Robinson delivers up a nice mix of originals and covers of The Velvet Underground (“Oh! Sweet Nuthin’”), Freddie McCoy (“One Cylinder”) and Krautrock outfit Agitation Free (“Laila II”).

Additional standouts include “The Giving Key,” “By the Light of the Sunset Moon,” “Bye Bye Baby,” “I Know You” and “Lost and Found.” Who knows if The Black Crowes will every reunited/end their hiatus, but Rich Robinson will be just fine no matter what happens. (Jeffrey Sisk)
