Turnpike Troubadours’ Out Of Print “Bossier City” Available for a Limited Time


If you’re a recent Turnpike Troubadours convert and never got a chance to own their very first debut album Bossier City, you better jump on the opportunity now because for a limited time they’re making it available to the public once again, with some of the proceeds going to a good cause.

Announced on Thursday (9-1), Bossier City will be available in hard copy form on the band’s website, with part of the proceeds going to victims of the recent Louisiana floods. Released December 11th, 2007 on their own Bossier City label, it finds the band in their nascent form before they really hit it big time in the Texas/Red Dirt scene with their 2010 record Diamonds & Gasoline.

No good public explanation has ever been given of why Bossier City disappeared from major retailers and the merch table a while back, but it may have to do with the fact that their most recent, self-titled album included two songs from Bossier City: the title track, and “Easton & Main.” Perhaps they plan to re-record other selections from the album in the future.

Either way, for those bellyaching that they can never get it, now is your opportunity. And I wouldn’t snooze on it because it won’t be around for long.
