Ah, The Company I Keep. .
“Goddam Lonely Love” is a great song, but it’s the only song of theirs I like. I even learned to play it for a friend who wanted to perform it.
I saw them live in Nashville about fifteen years ago, and it was one of the worst shows I’ve ever been to.
Just saw them Tuesday night. I've seen them many times over the years as theyre one of my favorites and Tuesday night was the best they've been since Isbell left.
They used to be one of my favorite bands, but lost interest over the last couple of years. Alabama Ass Whuppin through Dirty South is a solid run of albums.
Yeah, that was Jason Isbell. When he left the band, he took pretty much everything I liked about them with him. Was a fan of DBT, not so much since he left.
But I am a big fan of Jason Isbell. I think he writes great songs and I like his singing and his band.
I agree with Durtdog, Isbell had a large number of the songs that drew me to the band.
But so does Mike Cooley(sp), he has the meaner/dirtier songs, like the one I posted above. Also, he uses a tone of alternate tunings, which is important if you try to play them.
As much as I used to enjoy going to see them, after a while it was just the same old same old. Add in a rotating group of hired guns playing back up , and it got old for me.
But I will still throw on Dirty South or Decoration Day and rock out.
Back around 05, 06, a coworker burned a copy of Southern Rock Opera. It didn’t really do anything for me. I’ve since discovered Isbell, and really appreciate his work. But it’s a little TOO soft edged for me.
3 fantastic songwriters were in that band. I really like Isbell's solo stuff too, but that band is just missing something now.
I still put on a DBT playlist just to relive when the rock was strong with them.
The new album is very good.
