Bought in Bordeaux #2
My recent post featuring a Richard Thompson album bought in Bordeaux had me looking out the other album bought on that self same day in that self same shop in that self same city.
Blue Blvd from Dave Alvin was a 1991 album on Hightone or in this case a 1992 album on the French label Dixie Frog to whom it was licensed.
Dave Alvin has featured before on CCM and will undoubtedly feature again.
If you like your music raw, rootsy and passionate this is for you.
If you don't or are not familiar with Dave's solo work or his work with The Blasters you should really make it one of your New Year's Resolutions to become better acquainted with this seriously under-estimated artist.
A true blue collar hero.
