One of the first cd's I owned was Steve Earle and the Dukes' Shut Up & Die Like an Aviator (live) (1991). Came in that old packaging that carried like a plastic briefcase. I couldn't wait to get it home. For reasons they'd soon regret my good parents had bought me a Kenwood KRX-891 Amp and all the accompanying bells and whistles any 13 y.o. could ask for... turntable, dual cassette deck, five-disk CD player and (faux) wood speakers as tall as I was. Used to listen to Guitar Town over-and-over cranked up loud as it would go. That bass would hit right at "Speed trap up ahead Selma town..." a lesson I'd come to appreciate a few years down the road.
Looks like the hillbilly rocker's got a few more miles on him here. Reckon that's due in part to his two-pack habit and general bad-assery, but the ol' boy's still got something to say... (audio only. see video here).
