The Magic Door is the second studio album by American blues rock band Chris Robinson Brotherhood. It was released on 11 September 2012.[1] It was recorded at the same time as their previous album, Big Moon Ritual, and features a cover of Hank Ballard's "Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go", which the band has frequently performed live.[5] "Appaloosa" and "Little Lizzie Mae" are versions of recent Black Crowes songs (from Before the Frost...Until the Freeze and Cabin Fever, respectively), and "Someday Past the Sunset" was previously released on the Robinson brothers' live album, Brothers of a Feather: Live at the Roxy.[6]
