Editorial Reviews

Includes Bonus DVD:
Features 45 minutes of Q&A with the band, acoustic performances, vintage footage


In January 1972 a newly formed grassroots band The Flatlanders (comprised of the nucleus of Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Butch Hancock) travelled to Tommy Allsup s Odessa, TX studio at the urging of a local radio DJ. The 14 songs recorded on reel-to-reel tape arguably marked the birth of alternative country music. In celebration of their 40th anniversary together, the esteemed founding fathers of Americana will release a collection of these recordings as The Odessa Tapes via New West Records.

Thought lost for nearly 4 decades, The Odessa Tapes pristine recordings capture without any polish the special blend of country, folk, roots and cosmic energy The Flatlanders pioneered. A DVD featuring a candid new interview with The Flatlanders discussing the myths of the early days of their career and booklet with unreleased archival photos will round out this deluxe package. Limited edition 180-gram vinyl will also be available for the audio portion of the release.
