Drive-By Truckers’ Greatest Hits 1998-2009

Reading the track listing for Ugly Buildings, Whores and Politicians, DBT’s Greatest Hits 1998 – 2009, no Goddamn Lonely Love, Puttin’ People On the Moon, Heathens, (Something’s Got To) Give Pretty Soon and as for missing of A Ghost to Most well that’s just on, what were ‘they’ thinking of – was this was a New West comp rather than the band picked collection?

It’s easy to moan about what’s missing and what’s there that shouldn’t have made the edit, in truth culling the tracks down is a no-brainer given the size and quality of the bands back catalogue even when you leave out the last two releases, the official track listing is now out, the albums released in August and on vinyl too, the urge to buy will no doubt get the better of me.

The Living Bubba
Bulldozers and Dirt
Ronnie and Neil
Zip City
Let There Be Rock
Marry Me
Sink Hole
Carl Perkins’ Cadillac
Outfit
The Righteous Path
Gravity’s Gone (Remix)

Here’s what I would have gone with.
