Flint, Michigan’s Whitey Morgan & The 78′s eponymous album recorded at Levon Helm’s recording studio will be out on October 12th via Bloodshot Records. From Bloodshot:
“Outlaw’s always been the rough-around-the-edges, tough guy uncle at the country music family picnic. Denim and leather, not Stetson and Nudie. Hair by Pennzoil, not Pomade. But in the right hands–Haggard, Paycheck, Junior, Willie and Waylon and now Whitey Morgan–Outlaw is more than beards and bandanas, ink and attitude, its goddamn folk music.”
“With several songs based around the classic half-time drumbeat creating a tension between the languid and the hardheaded, others like Paycheck’s “Meanest Jukebox In Town” (with the killer Bob Wills infected fiddle) and “I Ain’t Drunk” kicking out the hard swing, and the badass boogie of “Buick City” and “Where Do You Want It?” (a song gifted to Whitey by Dale Watson, about an infamous shooting involving Outlaw legend Billy Joe Shaver), the album’s got an edge that Nashville’s forgotten or misplaced entirely.”
Also from Bloodshot, you can now download the title track from Justin Townes Earle’s upcoming album Harlem River Blues by CLICKING HERE. Plus the album is now available for pre-order. (Due out Sep. 14th)
