Product Description

Official reissue of the band's long 'out of print' live album from 2000. Recorded in various Georgia clubs during the Pizza Deliverance Tour of 1999, it is probably the most Punk Rock thing they have ever done. ATO Records and Drive-By Truckers have restored the original 1/2" analogue mixes of the album which have been remastered with some beautiful new art work.

After years of gazing longingly at this as an unavailable item, finally the masters are unearthed and we are treated to DBT's original live album, from a time almost when dinosaurs roamed the earth and the precious materials of Southern Rock Opera and The Dirty South were not, save a very raw and rocking Lookout Mountain, available for use.

Stripped to their essentials, then, we see DBT confirmed as one helluva live rock'n'roll band, all the excitement and energy of the performances storming out of the speakers. They could have probably got away with covering nursery rhymes, but hearing this early material makes you realise how strong it is. It's just that the more recent stuff is even stronger.

Some of the material, such as People Who Died, they were still playing when I last saw them a couple of years ago. The Living Bubba is now available on all three live releases, which include a DVD of material recorded in their adopted home of Athens, GA, probably the best of the three.

18 Wheels Of Love, as with the Live From Austin version, comes accompanied by a bit of chat from Patterson, but it's an earlier version of the story: by the time it got to Austin ten years later things had moved on somewhat, which means that the Ass Whuppin' version is four minutes shorter. There's then a weird story about an Avon Lady, also involving Hood's mom, which doesn't go with any of the songs but segues into the one about the sinister and predatory Margo And Harold.

Steve McQueen, a paean to the star of the ultimate chase movie, Bullitt, runs the gamut of musical styles, shifting restlessly and rockingly between moods.

And to cap off, the only song by Mike Cooley, Love Like This. But what a song!

Got into these guys after listening to there Pizzadeliverance album, Paterson Hood has a very strong voice and does most of the lead vocals, however Mike Cooley also delivers a very good tune.

Love DBTs 5 Oct 2013

This is what a live CD should sound like. It is exhilarating listening to live music and this one delivers. Just listen to the guitar solo on track 2 once and you will be hooked.

EARLY, RAW, LIVE DBT. SUCH A WORTHY BUY !! 11 Sep 2013
By C. Capobianco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
OK - Finally ! I'm so ecstatic that this album has been rereleased ! I can't say enough about this one. In my opinion...This is THE LIVE DBT cd to get your hands on ! I originally got it back around the Decoration Day release (when I realized that I couldn't get enough of this band) . If you like the DBT - just pick this one up - you won't be sorry. Sounds like shows supporting Gangstabilly, and Pizza Deliverance. Early DBT. Easily a 5-Star record. Right from the start "Hey y'all we're the Drive By Truckers..." and away we go. All I'll say is this - If you're into this band, and don't have this one in your collection, pick it up. I've listened to it easily over 50 times and I'm still not tired of it. My favorite DBT album.

This is a jump right in night at the rock show. 15 Oct 2013
By John Wallingford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
good solid rocking by the understated but growing legions who know the Drive by Truckers.
i have several of their previous albums, and really liked Go Go Boots and Patterson Hood's solo album.
This starts you out rocking and leaves no doubt you are going to get loud southern rock at its best. You do.

I miss some of the quieter ballads with the dark weirdoes that Hood seems to like, but there is plenty to think about here with daddy swallowing a six pack for medicine before he goes home and rings mommy's neck.

This cd is worthy if the you like the truckers. Maybe a bit of an acquired taste for non-trucker fans. Good.

About time! 28 Sep 2013
By D. Ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This was one of my first exposures to DBTs and I was hooked almost immediately. Around the same time that I "lost" my first disc of this, it became unavailable for download. For quite a while all I had was a boot to listen to. So I was VERY happy to see this was reissued. I can't say it any better than Kevin Marsh, who said this album "covers just about everything they got." Which is quite a lot.
