    The Flatlanders are Joe Ely, Butch Hancock, and Jimme Dale Gilmore. This is their first album in a long time, mostly covers.

    Me too. First thing I heard of his was the "Live Shots" album, from a tour opening for The Clash. (Joe recently posted some pictures of himself and The Clash at the Alamo several decades ago.) Still enjoy that album. Had a girlfriend once who was crazy about Ely's "Musta Notta Gotta Lotta" album. "Lord of the Highway" and "Dig All Night" are favorites of mine.

    Here's a nice live set from 2010, with David Grissom on guitar.

    Yup, Grissom got his start with Ely. (well, he did play for Lucinda first, for a short while, but he credits Ely for his growth as a musician into what he is today). Then Mellencamp stole him from Ely (with Ely's blessing).

    Grissom is a fave of mine. I'm kind of a "disciple" lol.

    I've read that David toured with the Allman Bros. Would like to hear some of that music.

    Back to The Flatlanders. From a 2017 show. "I Had My Hopes Up High," which Ely did on "Live Shots". I've known this song for 40 years now.



    The way I first heard the song.
