The Flatlanders- Treasure of Love (2021)

Posted by KB on 9/24/2021 to General Stuff
The Flatlanders (Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely and Butch Hancock) are as authentic as Americana can get. Each are established solo artists but as a band they blend the perfect olio of twang, country western, folk, rock(abilly) and blues into one well paced package with walking bass lines, guitar pickin', steel pedal guitar and boom-shacka drums. The majority of the songs are covers that the boys give fresh paint to making them their own. Rarely do predictable renditions of songs feel so lively. To me it's an accomplishment. "Treasure of Love" is fun and feels like an upbeat beer fueled hootenanny.
