Robbie Fulks and Linda Gail Lewis made a record together and it’s a glorious rock’n’roll meets country extravaganza. It’s a pure joy to listen to their fierce and fun album Wild! Wild! Wild! that came out on Bloodshot Records on the 10th of August. Hey, a couple of days with this one and I may fall behind in the most miserable man without any reason contest. Even though this record is a bliss, it also has the ability to move your soul and not just the body. Especially on the beautiful last song, Hardluck, Louisiana, Linda Gail Lewis delivers a vocal performance that will keep on holding you tightly long after the last note has faded away. Hardluck, Louisiana and Robbie’s I Just Lived a Country Song are the biggest highlights for me, but the whole record is gorgeous. Hardluck, Louisiana will end the weekly playlist that I’ll post tomorrow, so the lyric video of I Just Lived a Country Song can end this little blog entry about this lovely album.
Ok, here’s the title track too, because a) it’s wonderful b) it shows another side of this genre hopping blast of a record.
