    Acoustic show last night in Huntingdon. I’ve been to two of his acoustic shows and I think I enjoy them more than the full shows. 883DCECC-7F4E-4471-8A41-82117AD57164.jpeg

    Saw this in a record store earlier; I’ve gotta wonder if it influenced his decision on titling the album.

    I wouldn't even know where to start. Relatively Easy is my favorite isbell tune that really makes you think, some very haunting lines.


    I lost a good friend
    Christmas time when folks go off the deep end
    His woman took the kids and he took klonopin
    Enough to kill a man of twice his size
    Not for me to understand
    Remember him when he was still a proud man
    A vandals smile a baseball in his right hand
    Nothing but the blue sky in his eye

    Close your eyes and remember this. It won't be back again, it's almost gone.
    Even times that don't seem like much will be your only crutch when you're alone.
    Time moves slow when you're seventeen and then it picks up steam at twenty-one.
    Pretty soon you'll remember when you could remember when you loved someone

    I don’t think I could name one. I’d pick one then think of another and so on

    All those years you took from her just by being born

    Home was a dream one id never seen till you came along

    I've buried her a thousand times, given up my place in line
    But I don't give a damn about that now
    There's one thing that's real clear to me: No one dies with dignity

    But there ain't much difference in the man I wanna be and the man that I really am

    On a lark
    On a whim
    I said there's two kinds of men in this world and you're neither of them
    And his fist
    Cut the smoke
    I had an eighth of a second to wonder if he got the joke

    And in the car
    Headed home
    She asked if I had considered the prospect of living alone
    With a steak
    Held to my eye
    I had to summon the confidence needed to hear her goodbye
    And another brief chapter without any answers blew by

    Every word of If We We’re Vampires is flooring but these two couplets stand out

    The fragile heart you protected for so long
    Or the mercy in your sense of right and wrong

    Laugh at all the lovers and their plans
    I wouldn’t feel the need to hold your hand

    Had to take a last minute trip up to Ithaca, NY this week for work. Kinda bummed b/c it's cold as shit, I'm by myself, etc.

    Looking for stuff to do at night, and BOOM, Isbell is playing the State Theater in Ithaca tonight a mile from my hotel. $32 later and I'm Row A Center Balcony for the show tonight.

    Isbell’s voice may be in the best shape of his career. He’s hitting and holding great notes. Quitting smoking has paid huge dividends.

    I’m not a guitar expert by any means but would love to hear from those that are re: Isbell’s skill. He destroys solos and I’m loving the new Flying V shires just got him.

    James McMurtry is amazing. His songwriting is impeccable and he deserves more love itt. I hope he comes out with a new album soon.

    I was talking to someone last night at the Truckers show that it was funny, the only band more locked in and playing consistently great shows than DBT seemingly is Jason and the Unit right now, ironically enough.

    Round 2 for me this week.

    Had an absolute blast. Cover Me Up was a highlight. I was chatting with a guy in the beer line before the show who told me that Isbell “decided to get sober” after a particularly drunken night in Richmond—not sure how accurate that is. But he told me to keep an eye out for it.

    True on the Richmond thing.

    NCD: Do you remember the last drink you had?

    JI: “Yeah, it was moonshine. Well, I remember the last jug of moonshine that I had. I don’t remember what the bottom of it looked like, but I remember what the top of it looked like. We were in Virginia, so it was that stuff from like south of Richmond that’s really, really good—it’s been really good for the last 75 years. That was the last thing that I drank. It didn’t treat me well. I knew that I’d be going into rehab on Monday, so on Saturday night I tried to see how much I could get down and it was a bad experience for sure.”

    Before they played Runaway Train last night, Patterson said they’ll be officially releasing the old Adam’s House Cat album this year, Town Burned Down.

    They spent some of their time in Athens this week mixing/remastering the old tracks from back then so they can put it out.
