Richie Kotzen Career Retrospective Album Package Announced

A new musical retrospective spanning the last twenty years of Richie Kotzen's career has been announced.

Entitled ‘The Essential Richie Kotzen’ the package, which includes two CDs and one DVD, has been complied and curated from the former Mr.Big man's 18 studio records in addition to acoustic performances and rare bootlegs plus two new tracks ‘War Paint’ and ‘Walk With Me.’

I’ve really changed and grown as an artist and as a person,” Kotzen says. “I hand-selected songs so newcomers can get into my music and learn who I am as a recording artist.”

The compilation DVD will feature primarily Kotzen’s music videos but, as with the CDs, will also feature acoustic renditions and live recordings.

When you perform, record or write, you go to a different place. It’s another world. I love hearing people react to the music and lyrics. That’s the ultimate reward,” he says.

Rich Kotzen's 'The Essential Richie Kotzen’ will be released on September 2nd 2014.
