Okay, he's not a band. But his album, "Headed for the Hills," consisting entirely of songs written with Robert Hunter, is a gem. And there's more!

New Lauderdale/Hunter

Shelby, the great person who runs Lauderdale's FaceBook page, posted this yesterday:

"....stay tuned for more Jim/Robert music coming your way soon!"

Earlier, she'd said all she could get Jim to commit to for a release date was "sometime this spring." Anyway, keep your eyes open--

Jim Lauderdale

Check out Jim Lauderdale's " Country Super Hits Vol 1". True to the Bakersfield Sound of Buck Owens, the lyrics are heady and the music Rocks! One of my favorite albums of '07. Liam

Of course

Donna the Buffalo...

Have to admit Jacob's Ladder was my hook, next thing I knew I headed south to TN 'fore my own lil' Lauderdale tour. Ended with quite an extensive collection.

He has to have a personal tailor or two.....

A solo performers go, I am always blown away, I mean off in the wind at his shows.

Collabrator galore

Jim is awesome, sparklin' awesome, I have seen in with his bluegrass band, with his country band, and solo not to mention with other folk.

Dreamin' of the day he does some shows with Hunter live.....or just more songs.

First Hunter/Lauderdale collaboration was Joy Joy Joy and I Will Wait For You on I Feel Like Signing Today just got me a copy this year. Was released with Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys at the tail end of last century.
What a gem.
