Joe Ely has never topped the one-two punch of his first two albums, compiled here on one CD by Beat Goes On. Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Butch Hancock, all former members of an obscure Texas acoustic band called the Flatlanders, wrote all the songs but one. They had a wry sensibility that elevated the music above late 70s country rock. Check out Hancock's Boxcars and West Texas Waltz, two of the best numbers he ever wrote. Ely brought an everyman quality to the vocals and the band was a no frills outfit that added subtly to each tune. Lloyd Maines, father of Dixie Chick Natalie, played steel guitar Fans of outlaw country, Texas songwriters, or roots music should not pass up this excellent collection.
