"In January of 1972 a newly formed grassroots band travelled to Tommy Allsup’s Odessa, TX studio at the urging of a local radio DJ. The 14 songs recorded on reel-to-reel tape arguably marked the birth of alternative country music.
In celebration of their 40th anniversary together, the esteemed founding fathers of Americana will release a collection of these recordings as The Odessa Tapes via New West Records. Thought lost for nearly 4 decades, The Odessa Tapes pristine recordings capture without any polish the special blend of country, folk, roots and cosmic energy The Flatlanders pioneered.
The Odessa Tapes features 14 songs, four of which were previously unreleased (“Number Sixteen,” “Shadow of the Moon,” “I Think Too Much Of You,” “Story Of You”). The record is rounded out by original versions of the 10 songs that were eventually re-recorded when the band was signed to Shelby Singleton’s Plantation Records. The subsequent album, All American Music, was barely released on 8-track in late 1972 and The Flatlanders shortly went their separate ways."
Pour amateurs de country rock texan légèrement sucré..., une compil anniversaire.
