Although already something of a veteran performer by the time it was was released, Guitar Town marked Steve Earle's debut into mainstream music, without losing his country roots. Coming at a time when "new country" was finding its feet, Guitar Town was critical in turning the world's ear towards Nashville. Kicking off with the clear, crisp title track Guitar Town and moving through the highs and lows of life with classics such as the much-covered My Old Friend The Blues (sorry Eddie Reader, Proclaimers and the rest of you - you don't do it anywhere near as good as Steve)and slower, more emotional songs such as Little Rock'n'Roller, Steve Earle produced a high standard for all of his future work. There is not one duff track on Guitar Town. It is as relevant now as it was when it was released in the 80's. Buy it, play it, put down the remote control - you won't need the 'skip' button.

This has been described in some reviews as the best debut album ever, and I am not about to disagree, but for me it is a toss up between this and Chris Knight's self titled debut. This is one of those rare albums that come along every so often, where if you were asked to choose any track to omit, it would be impossible, every one is equally strong. The follow-up 'Exit O' manages the impossible by repeating this feat. A brilliant album full of delightful country rock offerings which owe much more to Springsteen and John Mellencamp than to Nashville. A must for any record collection!

This is the 1986 debut album by Steve Earle. And it`s great. Steve and the band really rocks on this one. But you can also find the more quieter ones like "Little Rock `n roller" and "My old friend the blues", which is two FANTASTIC songs.

You can truly feel what Steve is singin`, and not one song on this album is bad, not one song is average. Top class all the way. This must be one of the best debut albums for the last 30 years. Music don`t get much better than this.

So, if you like real country music with some real good rock n roll in it, buy this album.

This is a top drawer record with a mainly American country sound and some great songs. My favourite song is Fearless Heart. Other standouts are Guitar Town, Goodbye is all we got left to say and Hillbilly Highway. You can listen to the whole thing. There's no filler here. This guy is a great songwriter and carries the songs with panache in a strong American country voice. The songs are about ordinary life in flyover country. The bonus live cover of Springsteen's State Trooper is a nice way to end it, a real energetic version. You don't need to be a country music fan to enjoy this.

Format: Audio CD
When this album was released, Steve was acclaimed in some quarters as country music's version of Bruce Springsteen - high praise indeed. Subsequent albums have shown that comparisons with The Boss are spot on, including their political beliefs, but Steve has largely abandoned country music in favor of rock. He has never forgotten his roots, as he showed on The Mountain, an album that he recorded with bluegrass musicians, but he has never recorded another album quite like Guitar town.
Steve wrote or co-wrote all the songs on this album, which contains two major country hits (the title track and Hillbilly highway), both up-tempo rocking songs, which are typical of the album's style. Steve shows that he can do ballads too - just listen to My old friend the blues, a song subsequently covered by Janie Fricke for her album, Labor of love. Another great ballad is Someday, though I generally feel that Steve is at his best on the rocking up-tempo songs.
If you enjoy rocking country music as recorded by Travis Tritt, Marty Stuart and others like them, give this album a listen. If you are a fan of Steve's later music, you'll find this album somewhat different but you'll probably enjoy it. If you're a fan of The Boss, you should definitely give Steve's music a try.

this masterclass in songwriting taps into the core of the human mind, soul and spirit. foot-tapping, country, honky-tonk rock 'n' roll never sounded quite so magnificent. Buy it, play it, live it, love it. God bless you Steve Earle.
