The first live recording ever by Austin's Queen of Soul, cut in front of a wildly enthusiastic hometown crowd in one of America's most famous record stores-Waterloo Records in Austin, Texas. This seven-song, limited edition, thirty minute EP captures one of the country's best-loved artists at her live best. It's attractively packaged in a full color cardboard slip case.

Pianist/vocalist Marcia Ball is at a creative and commercial high point in her career. After years of critically acclaimed releases and thousands of jam-packed live shows, Marcia's career has kicked into high gear since the release of 2001's W.C. Handy-winning Presumed Innocent (over 60,000 scanned) and 2003's Grammy nominated So Many Rivers (over 30,000 scanned). Marcia has appeared on NPR's PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION, WORLD CAFÉ, DAY TO DAY WHAD'YA KNOW?, MOUNTAIN STAGE and E-TOWN. Marcia also appeared on PRI's STUDIO 360, the nationally syndicated MITCH ALBOM SHOW, THE HOUSE OF BLUES RADIO HOUR and PBS's THE BLUES series and the televised version of MOUNTAIN STAGE. At the same time, Marcia has been busy doing what she does best, playing her raucous roadhouse boogie and heart-melting ballads to a never-ending stream of happy, dancing audiences all over the U.S. and picking up loads of local and regional tour press. LIVE AT WATERLOO RECORDS captures Marcia Ball's mastery of roadhouse rock, New Orleans R&B and deep soul ballads, along with the Marcia personality and banter that her fans love. At a low, low price, it's a great value for fans of one of roots music's best-loved entertainers.
