Publisher Comments:

Steve Earle takes an intensive album-by-album look at this influential artist, offering critical appraisal of each recording and a portrait of each album?s studio process through interviews with the artist and the producers, engineers, arrangers, and musicians involved. An introductory essay tells the story of Earle?s life from his childhood in southwest Texas up to his first studio session. Additional biographical information?including archival and exclusive first-time interviews?reveals the circumstances in Earle?s often-tumultuous life at the time of each recording. The book also contains complete session information?dates, producers, engineers, mastering engineers, recording studios, songs and songwriters, and musicians.

Synopsis:

This book examines the life and music of Steve Earle, one of the most important and controversial singer-songwriters of our time. Through in-depth interviews with family members, producers, musicians, and with Earle himself, this volume traces Steve's journey from southeast Texas to his debut No. 1 country album, Guitar Town and his descent into drug addiction, and on to his triumphant comeback with Train a-Comin' and his subsequent challenging projects with co-producer Ray Kennedy. Rosanne Cash, Rodney Crowell, Peter Rowan, and Norman Blake are among the artists who offer insights into Earle's music.

bookends, October 25, 2007 (view all comments by bookends)
The best biography on one of our generation's great singer-songwriters. Steve has battled demons and addictions, been through five or six marriages (I've lost count), but has consistently written some of the best songs over the past 25 years.
