Drive-by Truckers – NPR

One of my top bands of all time on the menu this week, here’s a great set of songs from DBT’s recent NPR performance on
Mountain Stage.

Patterson was still getting over his pneumonia when this was recorded so Shona and Cooley look after most of the vocals in this set, which includes a cover of “Lonely Women Make Good Lovers” sung by Shona as a tribute to Fame Studio’s legendary keyboard maestro Spooner Oldham – a song he co-wrote with Freddie Weller. Patterson gets stuck into The Opening Act to wind up the show and there’s a stellar version of Ghost to Most, officially my favourite DBT track of them all.

Patterson’s solo album is out soon and available to pre-order here , the Austin City Limits performance is out in July on DVD and New West are releasing an album of Oddities & Rarities in September, full details are here including the news of a new album for 2010.
