Jason Isbell – Sirens Of The Ditch: Deluxe Edition. Released via New West Records on Double Vinyl LP, CD.
The debut album from accomplished guitarist and songwriter Jason Isbell, formerly of Drive By Truckers, is reissued with four unreleased tracks from the original recording sessions. The addition of those extra songs finds ‘Sirens Of The Ditch’ clocking in at 15 total tracks.
‘Sirens Of The Ditch’’s mystical quality can be partially attributed to the FAME recording studio (Aretha Franklin, Duane Allman, Otis Redding) in Isbell’s hometown of Muscle Shoals, AL, where the album was recorded.
Co-produced by Isbell and Patterson Hood (Drive BynTruckers), ‘Sirens Of The Ditch’ features Isbell singing lead vocals and playing guitar throughout, joined by Shonna Tucker (formerly of Drive By Truckers) on bass and Brad Morgan (Drive By Truckers) on drums.
Several musicians pop in for cameos including Spooner Oldham and David Hood (Patterson’s father) on ‘Down In A Hole’, John Neff (formerly of Drive By Truckers) on ‘Dress Blues’ and Patterson himself guests on
“A strong debut, full of the kind of confident, charismatic songwriting that just can’t be taught.” – Pitckfork
“Isbell could be roots rock’s Flannery O’Connor.” – Spin
Double LP format pressed on 180 gram vinyl with digital download code included.
