This review is for the single disc version. Copperhead Road is the third album by country rock star Steve Earle who had fell out with Nashville so went to Memphis to record it. Released in 1988 it reached no 7 on the Country Album chart although no songs were released as singles in the U.S. Three were in the U.K; "Copperhead Road" probably his most famous song, about a nam vet born into a moonshine family returning home, "Johnny Come Lately" about WWII veterans, and "back to The Wall" a song about the homeless. Other stand out tracks are the anti gun song "The Devil's Right Hand" and "Snake Oil" an anti Reagan song. All in all recommended.
