Amazon just delivered some goodness. I got the Meat Purveyors and another one off the Bloodshot label, Making Singles and Drinking Doubles which is Bloodshot’s 100th release. Making Singles is a compilation of singles from some of their great alt.country artists like Ryan Adams, Meat Purveyors, Waco Brothers, The Sadies, and Kelly Hogan.
I really like the Meat Purveyors CD. It’s solid all the way through. Most of the songs are up-tempo, ultra-twang, drinking songs, for lack of a better description. The album reminds me a little bit of a couple of early Old 97’s titles.
