STEVE EARLE '85

Steve Earle is American music personified
intermingling his profound political and social views in his songwriting with some damn fine guitar playing.
It is no wonder Johnny Cash loved this man.

GUITAR TOWN 30
30th ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION [2 CD]
The new package has more of my original photographs and the music has been remastered from the original tapes.
Guitar Town was originally released, March 1986, we took all the photographs in '85, both in my studio and on Lower Broadway.
Release date: October 14 2016

Guitar Town is a classic Nashville album. I am fortunate to have been involved with this project.
Steve Earle is one of the newer legends of country music. He has endured drug rehabilitation, a jail sentence and weathered

some of life’s storms to emerge as a cult hero.
He is instrumental in raising public awareness against the death penalty and has effectively done some great work that has saved lives.
This man rocks on stage, takes no prisoners and always delivers.
Johnny Cash told me that Steve's version of his "Hardin Wouldn't Run" was the best he'd heard.

Guitar Town was re-released in 2002 by MCA Nashville/UMG. The extended CD package included several of my photographs, that were not on the original LP.
Steve and the Dukes, the original band, performed the whole album live at Nashville's Ryman.

Several other compilation albums have been released using my photographs.

Steve Earle now lives in New York City, a far cry from Music City, Guitar Town and his Texas roots.
