More From The Levee contains ten of these extra gems including fan favorites Drive You Home Again, Caveman, and a brand-new Smither original titled What I Do. With members of Morphine, The Motivators and the late Allen Toussaint making it a truly special recording, More from the Levee is a snapshot of some powerful music-making.
