Hell, yeah! That album is what got me into Steve Earle. I didn't really know who he was before that.

speaking of jerusalem, the beginning of "ashes to ashes" is sufficiently creepy.

I forgot about El Corazon-That's one of my faves. I didn't care for his last 2 albums quite as much as the others he's put out since he's been clean, but still some great stuff on them.

'Well my name's John Lee Pettimore,
Same as my Daddy and his Daddy before..."

I don't know a lot of Steve Earle's work, but Copperhead Road certainly kicks ass.

Would he compare at all to Robert Earl Keene? (Someone else that I've heard a few songs from but don't know a lot about.)

I see him in the agitfolk family with Dylan, Billy Bragg, David Rovics, and so on, but with that lovely, ballsy, rootsy, creepy, drawly, dark southern edge.

John Walker's Blues is profound and piercing.

Seen him play.

Met him.

Does benefits for the local peace and justice center here in Nash Vegas.

Certainly makes me proud to live in Tennessee.

Love Steve Earle.
