Much of Jason Eady’s self-titled sixth album is the kind of quiet reflective country music that could be deemed thinking people music. Take for example the lead off track and one of the album’s pre-release tracks, “Barabbas.” Were it not for the title, there would be little indication of who this song is about. It’s one of those songs that if you were to hear, and then learn the title, you’d be struck by a though of “Oh, yeah, that makes sense.” That’s only one example of the strong song-writing at work on this album.

It’s been a little over a week since Record Store Day 2017, and I figure it is now time to give a proper review to Jason Isbell’s release, Live From Welcome to 1979. Recorded directly to lacquer as an analog only recording, this was an item released on vinyl, only on vinyl, with 4,000 presses, and it does not appear there are any intentions for any kind of digital release.
First, a little about my RSD experience. I knew this album was a must-have for me, and I contacted my local store (Record Den in the Greater Cleveland area) and confirmed their opening time and how many they would have of this release. They accommodated, I found out they should have about seven copies. They were opening at 9:00, so I arrived at about 7:15 and found about 40 people in line ahead of me. I began praying they didn’t all want the same thing as me.
