This year marks the 30th anniversary of Steve Earle‘s disruptive debut album, Guitar Town. The now iconic album ushered Earle to the forefront of the “outlaw” movement, giving hope and courage to a generation of songwriters…pushing back against the Nashville establishment.
To celebration this landmark album, MCA Nashville/UMe will release a deluxe edition of the album on CD and digital on October 14. The two-disc set will feature the classic album remastered from the original tapes by Robert Vosgien along with a previously unreleased 19-song live show recorded on the Guitar Town tour at Chicago’s Park West in 1986.
The concert will also be available on its own as a double LP on 180-gram vinyl exclusively at UDiscover: http://flyt.it/SteveEarle. A remastered vinyl edition of Guitar Town, cut for vinyl by Ron McMaster at Capitol Mastering and also remastered by Vosgien, was released in May along with Earle’s other MCA studio releases: Exit 0, Copperhead Road and The Hard Way.
Watch for Earle’s special 30th anniversary tour in select US and Canadian cities this fall.
