Record Store Day Vinyl (Part 2)

Next up on our afternoon playlist is my main Record Store Day score, the ‘Live In Studio‘  album by the Drive-by Truckers.


When the initial Record Store Day list of releases was issued a little over a month ago, I just about creamed my jeans when it listed a live release by the Truckers of seven tracks (on clear vinyl no less) from their epic new album ‘American Band‘.


I would have thrown elbows in a total Hanson Brother’s fisticuffs throwdown if need be to get to this album.  Fortunately, no one was even in the vicinity and it was procured rather easily.

Besides being among my favorite bands, or the fact that their latest album was among the best albums released in 2016 (click HERE for my own list), Kelly and I saw the band live in Toronto this past February and their new songs translated very  well live (‘Ever South‘ particularly) so getting to hear/own some of these tracks again live was, well, let’s just say I had to do a load of laundry as a result.

The album was recorded at Electric Lady Studios, NYC on July 12th this past 2016 and highlights the Truckers as they should be – live and rockin’.

Among the standouts are ‘Guns of Umpqua‘, ‘Surrender Under Protest‘, ‘One of These Days‘ and, yes, ‘Ever South‘.

Oh hell, who am I kidding?

Patterson & co. could play Christmas carols on their armpits and I’d think it was the best thing since sliced bread.


About crazytigerrabbitman

I am a fat guy and always will be in the same way they say that “once an alcoholic; always an alcoholic”. Eventually I got upset about my poor health and ballooning body frame so I decided to change things for the better. Some people sign up for Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, or whatever fad diet program it is that happens to be occupying the majority of air time on the boob tube. Other people prefer to run out and purchase the latest, fold away, piece of shit being hawked by some celebrity has-been. Me? I decided to take up triathlon. I had abused my body over the years with bacon cheeseburgers, pints of beer and double-dipped donuts, and the time had now come to abuse my body with physical exertion, perseverance and hard work instead; penitence in it's purest form. The time had come to kick my ass. I am Terry Nash and I am the “fat and the furious”.
