By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 1 Nov. 2000
Format: Audio CD
Wow! This is country with a roaring rock 'n roll heart, and a delicious concept album packed with melodic, emotional but very literate songs. At times it reminds me of the best work of The Rolling Stones. Every track is great, but my favorites include the title track, Snake Oil, The Devil's Right Hand, Johnny Come Lately and You Belong To Me. I investigated Steve Earle because of Emmylou Harris' cover of his song Goodbye on her Wrecking Ball album, and I've not been disappointed. His growling voice is full of feeling and the band is brilliant. Sometimes bitter, sometimes tender, this is a masterpiece of breath-taking beauty.

With two good albums under his belt, "Guitar Town" from 1986 and "Exit O" from 1987, "Copperhead Road" was Steve Earle's 3rd record for the MCA stable and he had clearly hit his song-writing stride. I remember when I bought it at the time that it sounded just HUGE - and although he was considered a `country' artist, "Copperhead Road" was a really a blasting rock 'n' roll beast of a thing with some country tinges thrown in for good measure. Even the front cover and picture of him on the rear smacked of `attitude' - a snot-nosed punk on a Harley eyeing up your underage daughter with less than moral intent. From the opening track it reeked of bar-drenched alcohol and chemical substances that weren't exactly Milk of Magnesia nor Aspirins. In other words, it was a great big ball of rockin' fun - and that sense of kick-ass joy permeates its every track to this day. Released October 1988 in the USA on Uni 7 and MCA 1280 in the UK - like other big-hitters around that time - "Brothers In Arms" by DIRE STRAITS, "Kick by INXS and "...Nothing Like The Sun" by STING - it also had the then desirable DDD code on the back of its jewel case - a Full Digital Recording.

This 2 June 2008, 2CD DELUXE EDITION, is a 20th Anniversary remaster of that album with 17 live tracks thrown in on Disc 2 (many of which are previously unreleased).

DISC 1 (43:39 minutes)
Disc One offers just the album on its own and is a GAVIN LURSSEN remaster. His work on this is TRULY BEAUTIFUL. The sound literally leaps out of the speakers at you with a warmth and clarity that will thrill lovers of the album to the core. It was always a LOUD record as I say, and DDD, but that isn't always good, because it can become hard on the ear - something you want to turn down rather than enjoy. But here the remaster is subtle.

Try to ignore the fact that this classic is filed under "country" and try out the best work that Earle has produced. There is not one tune that you will not be stomping and singing to in days. The only caveat is that most of his other work is not this accesssible. This was the first album I bought on two formats (vinyl and CD). Enough said.

What can I say about Steve Earle? This, his third album which came on the heels of a stunning debut album (Guitar Town) and follow-up (Exit O). Once again he did not disappoint. This was possibly the album that resulted in most of us becoming aware of his talent through its title track, I know certainly it hooked me. There are some really outstanding tracks within such as Copperhead Road, Johnny Come Lately, Even When I'm Blue, Devil's Right Hand, Snake Oil etc. This album shows an artist moving away from county and country rock towards rock. There is a harder edge to this recording than on those that preceeded it. If you are new to Steve Earle and want to sample just how good he is, then I suggest you rush out and get this recording. Steve Earle may have equalled the excellence of this recording but I doubt that he has ever surpassed it!
