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!
He's the real deal. Have a great time!
Coming real soon to my home town. I'll be sure to check him out.
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.
Six years? Patchwork River is a fine collaboration - if you don't know this disc and you're jonesin' for some Robert Hunter, not to mention the singing of Jim Lauderdale, it is going to bend your ear in a big way. Lots of cool help laying down ripping leads and tear-inducing steel, too.
Got to say this is a timeless release.
So we're up to Soul Searching: Memphis, Vol.1/Nashville, Vol.2. I loved I'm A Song, does anyone know Soul Searching?
that's great news!
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--
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
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.
He has a new video out off Bluegrass for the song Who's Leaving Who? I do believe.
