Favourite Earle album? It's a tough call really but for the moment let's argue that the top three are:
1. Guitar Town - For consistency of song and for that combination of Earle's acoustic guitar and Richard Bennet's twangy electric guitar is just devastating.
2. Copperhead Road - While the title track is the greatest thing he's ever done, I'd argue it's the tiniest bit less even song-wise than GT.
3. I Feel Alright - The real comeback album (Train-a-Comin' was just a warm-up), which expertly puts all of Earle's talents into play.
I admit to fleeting knowledge of the man's later work, so I look forward to hearing your own top three Earle's in the COMMENTS section.
