Steve Earle & The Dukes: J.T. (CD)

(New West Records) 11 Tracks, digisleeve

On the upcoming album J.T., Steve Earle & The Dukes honour Steve's late son Justin Townes Earle (J.T.), who passed away in Nashville on 20 August 2020.

The album is called J.T. because Justin never had another name until he was almost an adult. Well, when he was little, I called him Cowboy, Steve Earle explains. For better or worse, right or wrong, I loved Justin Townes Earle more than anything in this world. That being said, like every other record I've ever made, I made this record for me. It was the only way I knew to say goodbye.

The poignant Harlem River Blues is one of Justin's best-known compositions and was honoured with Song of the Year at the 2011 Americana Music Awards, following Justin's win in the Emerging Artist of the Year category in 2009. Watch Justin's original recording of Harlem River Blues, which was the title track of his 2010 album, here.

On J.T.. Steve Earle & The Dukes cover ten of Justin's songs - I Don't Care, which appeared on his 2007 debut EP Yuma, three songs from longplay debut The Good Life (Ain't Glad I'm Leaving, Far Away In Another Town and Lone Pine Hill) through to later compositions such as Champagne Corolla (2017) and The Saint Of Lost Causes (2019), the title track from Justin's eighth and final studio album. J.T. closes with Last Words, a song Steve wrote for Justin.

100% of J.T.'s artist earnings and royalties will be donated to a trust for Etta St. James Earle, the three-year-old daughter of Justin and Jenn Earle. Although the album is sombre in parts, it is ultimately a stirring celebration of a life lived with passion and purpose. The recording features the latest incarnation of Steve's backing band, The Dukes - Chris Masterson on guitar, Eleanor Whitmore on fiddle & vocals, Ricky Ray Jackson on pedal steel, guitar & dobro, Brad Pemberton on drums & percussion and Jeff Hill on acoustic & electric bass. hy

"Steve Earle & The Dukes"

Steve Earle

The guitarist had to earn his money as a country composer in Nashville for seven years, where Steve Earle, born on January 17, 1955 in Fort Monroe, Virginia, Texas, had lived since 1975. He first played the trumpet, and at the age of eleven he took up the guitar. Since 1969 he performed in clubs and wrote songs together with Townes Van Zandt before releasing the EP'Pink And Black' on the Nashville label LS 1 Records.

debut album Cadillac

In 1982 Earle produced his debut album CADILLAC with a country / rockabilly mixture, in which his record company Epic Records placed little trust and cancelled the contract in 1984. The change to MCA Records got the -atmospheric Rock'n'Roll on the semi-acoustic Klampfe- (Musik Express) well.

In the style of Waylon Jennings' or Willie Nelson's country outlaws, Steve Earle produced his 86 LP GUITAR TOWN (US #89). Who led the country charts in the fall of the year. In Earle, Rolling Stone recognized a New Country pioneer alongside Dwight Yoakam and Ran-dy Travis.

Steve Earle performed at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles in February 1987 and then put together his backing band Dukes with Zip Gibson (g), Kelly Looney (b), Craig Wright (dr), Ken Moore (key) and Bucky Baxter (steelg). He presented it in summer 1987 on the album EXIT 0 (GB #31, US #90), which sold better in Great Britain despite typical North American music.

Copperhead Road

At the end of 1988 Earle sought new stylistic challenges with the mainstream rock influenced material of COPPERHEAD ROAD (GB #42, US #56). Keyboards were used to create bagpipes, a romantic mandolin mixed with sharp guitar riffs, Celtic sounds with country rock. Earle obviously wanted to break with Nashville traditions.

In 1988 he delivered his version of the classic'Six Days On The Road' for the soundtrack to the John Candy / Steve Martin film -Planes, Trains And Automobiles- and released the singles'Copperhead Road' (GB #45) and'Johnny Come Lately' (GB #75). Tours, including Bob Dylan's supporting programme, and concerts were on Earle's schedule in 1989. In the summer of the following year, Joe Hardy co-produced THE HARD WAY (GB #22, US #100) was released.

From shirt-sleeved country to rockabilly to stomping rock'n'roll (hifi vision), the man with the nasal voice and the reserved guitar playing dominated the entire spectrum of US pop. In July 1991 he gave several concerts in the UK, including the Cambridge Folk Festival, introducing SHUT UI' AND DIE LIKE AN AVIATOR (GB #62). Drug problems got the hard rocking country musician (billboard) into trouble.

Cocaine and crack

When large quantities of cocaine and crack were found in his car in 1992. He was sentenced to just under a year's imprisonment. Visibly recovered, he recorded TRAIN A COMIN' in 1995 and performed live again for the first time in Nashville on April 18.

In October he worked for Emmylou Harris and set up his own label Mutiny Records. In 1996 he succeeded with I FEEL ALRIGHT a true Country / Folkrock masterpiece. The -leaver from the commercial ghetto Nashville, who lives and plays rock'n' roll (trade journal), surpassed himself.

He had processed drug experiences ('Cocaine Can't Kill My Pain') and created intensive ballads like'Ellis Unit One' and offered a firework of rockabilly, bluegrass, folk and rock-hard biker-rock (Musik Express).
