Jerry Joseph - Beautiful Madness (2 LPs)
Who the hell is Jerry Joseph? Well Patterson Hood and Jason Isbell think he is one of the best songwriters and performers ever, so much so they backed him up on his newest album. While he has been flying just under the radar in the US he is unknown in Europe and that is all about to change.
This is his first ever European release and will be three months ahead of the US release. Not only are Drive By Truckers the backing band on his upcoming tour but they also recorded the entire new album with Jerry as his backing band. Jason Isbell features on one of the key tracks 'Dead Confederate' and Patterson Hood also produced the entire record.
