C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Joe Ely

Jolie Blon how are you?

Throughout his almost 40 year recording career Joe Ely's music has been pigeonholed into numerously prefixed music sub-genres. Outlaw Country, Progressive Country, Alt-Country and on and on.

Born on this day, February 9th, in 1947, Joe's music has been heard both blaring out of the jukeboxes in the honky tonks of his boyhood home of Lubbock, Texas and the shambled halls that host a punk rock band or two (he opened for the Clash on a couple of tours as well as contributed background vocals on their song "Should I Stay Or Should I Go.")

With it being both Joe's birthday and the sun setting on Fat Tuesday, I figured this would be apropos to bring to the club this evening.

What are you listening to tonight?
