Peter Case launches HWY 62 in Buffalo, of course

No, HWY 62 isn't about one-upping Bob Dylan, U.S. Route 62 happens to be the road which not only connects Peter Case from his Buffalo birthplace to his childhood home in Hamburg, New York,  it also traces the path to all his musical inspirations from Canada right down through Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma and West Texas.

Joining Case on the crowd-sourced venture co-produced with Eleni Mandell's sidekick Sheldon Gomberg are DJ Bonebrake, Don Heffington, Ben Harper and others who won't be present when he launches HWY 62 – slated for release by Omnivore Recordings on October 30 – at Buffalo's Sportsmen's Tavern (326 Amherst) on Friday (September 11). Watch a clip from the show after the list of tour dates below.

The limited edition yellow vinyl version of HWY 62 (which comes with a digital download card) is currently available for pre-order from the Omnivore site right here. It looks like Buffalo is the closest Peter Case will get to Toronto this time around as you can see from his tour schedule after Omnivore's economical release trailer and our man's typically brilliant performance of Bob Dylan's 1963 gem Long Time Gone which you'll hear in a studio version on his forthcoming 11-track album.
