Product Description & Reviews

Reissue of the only recordings made in 1972 by this legendary, short-lived, country band from Lubbock, TX. Mostly original songs featuring the lead vocals of Jimmie Dale Gilmore-with Butch Hancock and Joe Ely lending vocal and instrumental support with occasional guest appearances by Steve Wesson on musical saw! Country with a mystical touch- Dallas; You've Never Seen Me Cry; Tonight I Think I'm Going Downtown; Rose from the Mountain and more. More a legend than a band because, even though the Flatlanders included the likes of Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely, and Butch Hancock, their 1972 album wasn't actually released on vinyl until 1980 and on CD until 1990. By then, that trio of singer-songwriters had become solo stars. But this long-lost debut isn't just historically interesting. Gilmore songs here, such as "Dallas" and "Tonight I Think I'm Gonna Go Downtown," have become folk-country classics, and the old-time arrangements--often featuring little more than guitar, Dobro, and (on a few cuts) musical saw--are quite haunting, as are Gilmore's piercing lead vocals. --David Cantwell
