Preludes: Rare And Unreleased Recordings hits stores Tuesday (May 1) and features 16 songs plus a CD containing an interview with the man who gave the world Werewolves Of London.
The songs almost didnt see the light of day, because Zevons son, Jordan, didnt even know they existed until he came across a piano-sized touring case filled with reel- to-reel tapes and acetates.
Says Zevon: I was absolutely floored, but knew they must be special or he wouldnt have saved it.
Zevon thinks the album will appeal to his dads fans and will raise his profile to a new generation.
But thats just step one of a whole Zevon revival.
Thats because Zevons ex-wife, Crystal, is releasing a new memoir, Ill Sleep When Im Dead (Ecco/HarperCollins) that features anecodotes about him by the likes of Jackson Browne, Mitch Albom, David Crosby and Lindsey Buckingham.
