‘Live In France: The 1966 Concert In Limoges’ is a previously unissued live solo recording of the “Godmother of Rock n’ Roll,” Sister Rosetta Tharpe, captured at the auditorium of the Grand Theatre in Limoges, France on November 11, 1966.

This is an official release on producer Zev Feldman’s new Deep Digs record label, inpartnership with Elemental Music, and in cooperation with the Sister Rosetta Tharpe Estate and INA France.

Goldblatt; two sets of liner notes by American and French Tharpe biographers — Gayle Wald (‘Shout, Sister, Shout!: The Untold Story of Rock-and-Roll Trailblazer Sister Rosetta Tharpe’) and Jean Buzelin (‘Sister Rosetta Tharpe: La femme quinventa le Rock ‘n’ Roll’); and statements by Susan Tedeschi, Henry Rollins, Billy Gibbons and Joan Baez.
