2017 release. Multi-instrumentalist/singer Larry Campbell and singer/guitarist Teresa Williams have long provided musical firepower for fellow artists including Levon Helm, Bob Dylan, Mavis Staples, Little Feat, Phil Lesh and Friends, and Rosanne Cash. When the duo stepped onto center stage in 2015 with their Red House Records debut, Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams, the response was immediate: the release placed them atop the Americana radio charts, Mojo called them ´´The first couple of Americana´´ and Uncut gave the album 9/10 stars, describing it as ´´Passionate, eloquent, spilling over with regal harmonies... channeling Emmylou and Gram.´´ In January 2017, armed with a new collection of Campbell originals, the pair headed back into the studio with longtime drummer/engineer Justin Guip and new bassist Jesse Murphy to record their follow up. Contraband Love represents a leap forward for Larry and Teresa as they dive even more deeply into their shared pool of musical and life experience. Williams continues to impress as a vocalist, turning in stunning performances on Campbell originals ´´Contraband Love´´ and ´´Save Me From Myself.´´ Her interpretive skills are showcased on two surprising covers: the Carl Perkins classic ´´Turn Around´´ (featuring drumming by Levon Helm on one of his last sessions), and ´´My Sweetie Went Away,´´ penned in 1923 and popularized by Bessie Smith. High octane originals ´´Hit & Run Driver´´ and ´´The Wishing Well´´ give Campbell ample room to show off his vocal prowess as well as his legendary dexterity as a guitarist. Campbell particularly shines on his soul ballad ´´When I Stop Loving You,´´ co-written with Stax Records songwriting legend and recent Grammy winner William Bell. Building on the bedrock of album one, Contraband Love features adventurous songwriting, powerful new interpretations of their blues and gospel influences, sterling musicianship and some achingly vulnerable vocals by Teresa and Larry as they tackle emotionally stormy themes of love and betrayal.

A new place is being built, a world of huge dimensions, encompassing millions of miles, stronger than any planet before it. There is gravity, and with high walls and its proximity to the sun, a livable new planet that is three million times the area of the Earth can be formed. We can start again! Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards for best novel Four travelers come to the ringworld. . . Louis Wu: human and old; bored with having lived too fully for far too many years. Seeking a challenge, and all too capable of handling it. Nessus: a trembling coward, a puppeteer with a built-in survival pattern of nonviolence. Except that this particular puppeteer is insane. Teela Brown: human; a wide-eyed youngster with no allegiances, no experience, no abilities. And all the luck in the world. Speaker-To-Animals: kzin; large, orange-furred, and carnivorous. And one of the most savage life-forms known in the galaxy. Why did these disparate individuals come together? How could they possibly function together? And where, in the name of anything sane, were they headed?
Welcome to Ringworld, an intermediate step between Dyson Spheres and planets. Ninety-three million miles in radius - the equivalent of one Earth orbit or 600 miles long - 1,000 meters thick, and much sturdier than a Dyson sphere. What other advantages are there to this world? The gravitational force created by a rotation on its axis of 770 miles per second means no need for a roof. Walls 1,000 miles high at each rim will let in the sun and prevent much air from escaping. Larry Niven´s novel Ringworld is the winner of the 1970 Hugo Award for Best Novel, the 1970 Nebula Award for Best Novel, and the 1972 Ditmars, an Australian award for Best International Science Fiction. 1.
