Product Description

Product Description

In August of 2012, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit assembled in their home state of Alabama in front of a couple of sold out concert halls to record their first live album, Live From Alabama. After years of hard touring, the critically-lauded band has gelled into a versatile rock and roll squad that is equally at ease performing Muscle Shoals soul to hardcore country to balls-out rock. Live From Alabama's tracklist mines some of Isbell's most popular songs and includes a pair of inspired covers in Neil Young's "Like a Hurricane" and Candi Staton's "Heart on a String." Bob Harris Session to air around release date Also available: Here We Rest


...'Isbell has blossomed as a solo artist and band leader and is producing the best material and performances of his career...passionate and tight performance from an exciting live band.' --Michael Hingston, CMP * * * *

If there's a better album released in 2012 I haven't heard it. This live album recorded in Birmingham Alabama captures Jason Isbell and 400 Unit in fine form. I saw Jason in solo concert earlier this year in London and thought it was one of the finest shows I'd seen in a long time, and his songwriting skills are captured in this album. For fans of Drive by Truckers,Jason performs tracks that he wrote for both the Decoration Day and Dirty South albums, but there are also performances of material from his solo albums including the Americana Music Awards winning track Alabama Pines. The set is bookended by tracks Tour of Duty and Dress Blue both poignant songs about young men sent to fight overseas wars. As an encore Jason offers a rendition of Neil Young's " Like a Hurricane" which caps a truly memorable album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good band caught live 19 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD
It is rare that a live album transcends or even equals a band's studio output. I'm thinking Live and Dangerous, Quo Live, Frampton comes alive and not much else comes to mind off the cuff. Sure there are great live albums in their own right, Live at Leeds, get yer Ya yas out, etc, etc, I think that a live album has to be seen in isolation, a record of a particular moment in time, and that if you want a definitive version of the tracks in the concert then reach for the studio album. So with that, lengthy, caveat, I have to say that I am immensely impressed by this album. There is a nice mix of old Drive by Truckers stuff, some stuff of the solo and other 400 unit albums and a killer closing cover of Like a Hurricane. Jason Isbell is in good voice, displaying a degree of vulnerability that is not always apparent in the studio and the band are tight as a gnat's chuff. Obviously this band's main appeal will be for current fans, and if you fall into that bracket you will not be disappointed. If you haven't heard this band then if you like anything from the Byrds to Lynyrd Skynyrd by way of Steve Earle, then you might find something new to like here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Drive By This Ex-Trucker 23 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Three studio records in Jason Isbell is carving out a career as a Premier singer songwriter of the Americana genre (whatever that is). Live he's even better, highlights include a stunning version of Danko/Manuel and a cover Neil Young's seminal 'Like A Hurricane'. Lasting over 70 minutes this is not to be missed - only grumble where's the DVD !

4.0 out of 5 stars Jason vs Patterson - discuss 8 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD
I'm a fan of the DBTs but I've always had a niggling feeling that they don't quite hit the mark, that they're trying too hard. Having seen Isbell leave and start to do is own stuff, I'm of the opinion that his laid back, bluesy-country tinged style will be missed by the Truckers, and therefore if you're similarly minded, you will find that this is a gem of an album. Patterson's angst and hurt has it's place, but just not all the time. My standout track is Blue, even without the drum click. Sterling support from the band as well.

My current favourite CD! Isbell and The 400 Unit rock out in Alabama. Singing songs from across his career including from The Drive By Truckers he demonstrates his ear for good melodies, riffs and cracking lyrics. In particular "Outfit" is a stand out song full of regret, anger and Southern pride. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous Live Album!! 29 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I only recently discovered Jason Isbell via the equally brilliant Southeastern album. I have to say that I agree with many of the comments in this thread - this is one helluva live album!! I am quite an old guy now and I spent a large chunk of my time in the military and - you may not be aware of this - soldiers and strippers have the best music!! This is the sort of album which, because of several references to military life, will be a favourite on the ipods of military men in the US and UK. Jason follows a tradition of singers that appeal to these guys, not only Neil Young but also Warren Zevon, Jackson Browne, Steve Earle and Slaid Cleaves. Well worth seeking out.
