Miami (Izzy Stradlin Album)
Miami is former Guns N' Roses rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin's 7th solo album, released only on iTunes on the 30 May 2007. Izzy announced through his website that he and bassist JT Longoria had remixed the album, and would be releasing the 10 songs (excluding FSO Ragga) on iTunes on 24 July. Izzy's Statement: "JT Longoria and I have just remixed 10 tracks of the "Miami" recordings and its much louder and more powerful sounding now. It was done in Dallas at Nomad Studios. Gary long did the mastering. Big thanks to those guys. It has just gone live on iTunes today. You will hear the difference...... Cheers! Izzy."
Taz Bentley, a member of Stradlin's band, told Izzy's official web site that the "Miami" recording sessions date back to late 2005 and early 2006, when the album was completed. "This recording is more loose," he said. "We spent time jamming the songs out a pinch more than normal. The vibe was relaxed and the songs are as strong and diverse as always."
