Speaking of Drive By Truckers (Dangerous Highway 7″)

As some of you may know, I’ve been spending the week in Cincinnati. One of the things I always try to do when I hit a new city is check out the local record stores. Thanks to some help from a few locals, I got some great tips for where the good record finds are in Cincinnati. Places like Everybody’s Records & Mole’s Records which is a sleepy little store right off UC campus that any vinyl hunter could easily spend a week in if unchecked (crates from floor to ceiling completely unsorted). One of the record stores I was told I HAD to go to was Shake-It Records. Shake-It from what I gather is somewhat of an institution in Cincinnati, and rightly so as it’s one of the most eclectic, friendly, and organized record stores I’ve been to.

Now, on to the subject of this post. Shake-It Records is also a record label, and luckily for me, their latest offering is a Drive-By Truckers 7″ that is Vol. 2 in a tribute to Muscle Shoals session legend Eddie Hinton (Vol. 1 is by Cincinnati native Greg Dulli of The Afghan Whigs). Now, click that Eddie Hinton link there because there is some interesting info there. For instance the DBT song Sandwiches  For The Road is based on the life of Eddie Hinton. As Dana Carvey would say in his Johnny Carson impression “I did not know that”.

Now I haven’t had a chance to listen to this yet, because my turntable is back home in Virginia, but I just wanted to give everyone a heads up on this. What I can give you though is a killer live version of side B: Everybody Needs Love

    if s store/label actaully went to the well to honor Eddie Hinton, and with this kind of talent (I hear there's more vols. to come) – then DAMN, a grateful nation should applaud them.

    The live track comes from this show: http://www.archive.org/details/dbt2009-08-08.akg460.flac16 and is available with permission of the band, there's plenty of DBT shows here. Some absolute killer shows.
