Drive-By Truckers – Your Woman Is A Living Thing 45 (Vid)

Well, let’s kick off the “summer of 1k posts” with this little ditty by the Stroker Ace himself. Now some of you may know about this, it was a limited edition 45 that was only released to indie record stores for this past Record Store Day. And if you don’t know what Record Store Day is, well it’s a day that bands who care about¬†independent¬†record stores push out exclusive items to those stores, and those stores only in hopes of driving up sales. Their are also typically a lot of in-store performances that go on that day (Check out DBT themselves performing at Harvest Records in Asheville, NC)

Well, anyway, this particular 45 is so far the closest thing we are going to get to the much desired Cooley solo album. The story I heard on this was that Cooley had laid down the vocals kind of impromptu on this track under the influence of some pretty good substances it sounds like. The band loved it but they weren’t going to release it. Cooley relented however and his love for indie record stores made him decide to release this as an exclusive. He even went so far as to pose for that silly cover!

Anyway, I get a kick out of this every time I hear it and thought you folks would too. Special thanks to Brit for picking this up for me! Keep pluckin….keep pluckin…..keep pluckin……

      You’re not gonna keep track are you? It’s a phrase man, a PHRASE. There are only about 100 days of summer…I would have to post 10 times a day to get a thousand!
