Jerry Jeff: Clear Vinyl Lp
Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Label: New West Records
Release Date: 26th August
The great Steve Earle pays tribute to another of his country mentors and pals who are no longer here as he takes on the work of fellow Outlaw Countryman Jerry Jeff Walker. Steve embodies the rawness of the source but these aren't perfect carbon copies these are loving takes with that sandpapered drawl and fiddled chicken-wire country of a master of song.
For those who dig: Outlaw country and Jerry Jeff Walker.
Steve Earle has been creating intimate and personal music for well over four decades now.
His songwriting has wound itself along a path from Texas to Tennessee and his education came in the form of learning from the best. 2009's Grammy-nominated record, TOWNES was a tribute to his dear friend and mentor, Townes Van Zandt. Ten years later Earle released, GUY. An album concentrated on paying homage to the late Guy Clark and the indelible friendship that they had formed in stories told through song. 2022 welcomes the release of JERRY JEFF. A 10-song collection of songs written by the gypsy songman, Jerry Jeff Walker. Featuring hits like, "Mr Bojangles" and "Gettin' By\", Earle & The Dukes honour the late Texan by amplifying the concept and sound of each song with a full-band recording.
