REVIEW: Joe Ely Full Circle: The Lubbock Tapes (link to Phawker)

Train Army: And, say, check out my debut on Phawker. I’ve never had a chance to write about Joe Ely or the Flatlanders and jumped at the opportunity when editor-in-chief of Phawker, Jonathan Valania, asked me to write something on Ely’s new archival release called Full Circle: The Lubbock Tapes. I tried not to but, of course, I went totally over the top. What can I say? Butch, Joe, and Jimmie have had a profound influence on me. Anyway, hope you dig it. It’s my first attempt at “journalism” since I wrote an equally effusive review of King of America in 1985 for my high school newspaper! Best, Jon Houlon
