I Am Shelby Lynne is finally getting the deluxe reissue it has richly deserved and will be released as a CD/DVD set by Rounder Records on Oct. 7.

My former comrade at Blogcritics interviewed Ms. Lynne a few years back and asked, on my behalf, if a I Am Shelby Lynne reissue might be in the offing. She said then what she is saying now, that revisiting this album brings back memories of a lot of pain but that a deluxe edition could one day happen. I would like to take credit for this all coming to fruition but will instead count the days until I can walk to my record store and scream, "Take my money! Please!"

I'm excited to hear the six previously unreleased songs but I can tell you the first thing I'm doing when I get this set: I'm queuing up the DVD and listening to her perform my two favorite songs from the record back-to-back: "Why Can't You Be?" and "Lookin' Up." Those also happen to be the first two songs I ever heard from it, on the recommendation of another former BC cohort, Mark Saleski.

Check out the tracklisting for both the expanded album and its accompanying DVD.
