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

September 19, 2018


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!
