Yay! We have all been holding our breath and watching for news about Whomp at the Warfield for so long. I hope so much that this comes to pass. The timing is great for Christmas shoppers (and is just in time for my birthday).

AND, according to Image Entertainment, there is a BONUS Taylor Hicks interview! Squee!

So many goodies to look forward to, let’s add this shall we – The Cover Art:

That is a damn fine picture.

From a previous post re: Whomp at the Warfield:

This DVD was recorded during Taylor’s concert at The Warfield Theater in San Francisco, May 9, 2007:

Gonna Move
Give Me Tonight
Heart and Soul
– Brown-Eyed Handsome Man
Medicated Goo
Just To Feel That Way
My Friend
The Deal
Hold On To Your Love
– Lonely Avenue
Wherever I Lay My Hat
Soul Thing
– Eastbound and Down
Heaven Knows
– Ain’t It Funky Now
The Maze
– Warm Love
The Right Place
The Runaround
– Big Boss Man (harp tease only)
– Willie Brown Blues

The Fall
Naked in the Jungle
– Dance to the Music
– I Wanna Take You Higher

This concert has aired on the TV channel HDNet a handful of times and word is Medicated Goo was left off the menu. No explanations were given, but it is possible they were unable to clear the rights to air the tune.

No explanations on why such a long wait between filming and release either, but if I had to guess I would say that it boils down to distribution rights (Van Morrison is known to be especially protective of and vigilant about his work). It’s pure conjecture on my part, though.

I can’t give firsthand details on this concert as I wasn’t there nor do I receive HDNet, however I did see some vids by a Boogie poster named caligal. Naked in the Jungle is worth the price of admission all by itself.

Thank you, luvtaylorhicks – you made my day. 🙂

    I wonder if the DVD is a Whomp Records release? He is listed as the producer, wasn’t he?

    That would be so cool.
