Joe Ely: Love In The Midst Of Mayhem (CD)

(Rack 'Em Records) 10 tracks​, digisleeve

“It’s put together straight from the emergency we have right now,” says Ely friend and acclaimed artist Terry Allen. “Every song is about love, for love, to love and with love… love when we need it most.  Love in the Midst of Mayhem is not just a joy to listen to, it's a necessity.”

Fresh off his 40th Anniversary celebration concert of the recording of his first live album, “Live Shots”, Joe Ely was just settling in to get to work on his next batch of projects and gigs, when the coronavirus pandemic (or “pandamint” as Joe calls it) took grip. After seeing the worldwide scope of the pandemic, initial frustration about cancelled projects and gigs quickly turned into a question of, “What can I do to help?” Knowing they would be confined to their home for an undetermined amount of time, Joe and his wife Sharon jumped on the opportunity to review music, files, and notes of Joe’s work thru the years of songs that had not yet found a home. “I went digging in places I hadn’t visited in a long time,” says Joe. What they found was a treasure trove of love songs, several of which speak of compassion for your fellow person.

The new album, “Love in the Midst of Mayhem” is a collection of ten of these songs. “The album popped up quickly, but, at the same time, it was a long time coming”, says Joe. “When putting together an album, I typically try to go with a story. This time I went with feeling. I see people out of work, out of food, and I see medical workers and others on the front lines putting their lives in danger everyday. I also see the beauty of the human spirit at work too. The time was right.” Whether you are slow waltzing with your loved one after dinner to “You Can Rely on Me”, or moved by the simplistic brilliance of “A Man and His Dog”, this album is sure to make you look inside.

“I hope we all kind of see where we are today, and realize that we need to come together to pull out of this. We need to turn fear into a positive thing to put the world back together. I hope people will listen with open eyes and an open ear.”

"Joe Ely"
geb. 9. 2. 1947 in Amarillo - TexasRecord Labels: MCAErster Hit: All My Love (1977)Joe Ely, in früher Jugend von Jimmie Rodgers und RobertJohnson beeinflusst, ist ein Sänger, der sich viele Jahre langmit allen möglichen Jobs durchs Leben geschlagen hat. Erarbeitete bei einem Zirkus, pflückte Obst in New Mexicound war Tellerwäscher. Dazwischen spielte er immer wieder Gitarre in den verschiedensten Bands, bis er sich derBand von Butch Hancock anschloss und mit auf Tourneeging. In dieser Zeit entwickelte er jenen Stil, der für dieTexas Outlaws wie Jerry Jeff Walker, Butch Hancock oderauch Waylon Jennings so typisch war und oft unter demNamen „Southern Rock“, „Redneck Rock“ oder auch kurz„Outlaw Music“ verkauft wurde. Auch mit jenem fast sagenumwobenen Jimmie Dale Gilmore hat Joe Ely musiziertund er war es auch der,bei jenen Aufnahmen für Plantationmitgesungen und Dobro gespielt hat zusammen mit Gilmore, Butch Hancock, Tommy Hancock, Sylvester Riceund Steve Wesson an der Singenden Säge. Dann kam 1975der Vertrag mit MCA und im Verlauf der nächsten Jahre einpaar großartige L.P.s, nur die Hits, die stellten sich nicht einund aus der Texas Music Szene ist inzwischen der Dampfohnehin raus. Joe Ely scheint seine Chance verpasst zuhaben.
