Our friends over at Bloodshot Records released his debut album “Country Love Songs” on vinyl this year, for the first time ever. They did that with an early Wayne “The Train” Hancock album as well, and others. The last few years have indeed been a triumph for vinyl collectors, and I could not be anymore elated over that.
This past Christmas I witnessed MANY people get record players, and there are many reports of vinyl outselling all other forms of music in 2019. If you are one of those people, this album needs to be at the TOP of your list.
This man is one of the many artists that led me to enjoy underground music like Mr.Chris Knight and Wayne Train Hancock. In 1998 I was just getting into this underground music with a few more bands, but this album and this man was one of the catalysts that sparked my love of local music….and here I am.
The 1990s are a hard decade to collect vinyl from, because next tot nothing was made by any artist and every time I find these companies re releasing their titles to us collectors, I always try my best to let my readers know. Because this album is probably one of the TOP 100 albums of all time for me, when it comes to Roots music.
As the years went by, I became to have even more love and respect for him for all of his contributions to music. He spent quite some time making music with Miss Linda Gail Lewis, sister of Legend Mr. Jerry Lee Lewis. In 2016 his album called “Upland Stories” made my TOP 50 lists.
Today’s times have witnessed a total comeback of vinyl and in fact it is outselling compact discs! People have become enamored again about going out to the record store and buying new records…however many of them still come with download cards for your digital needs.
