DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS: SOMEONE ELSES SONGS (VOL. 2)


Last December I posted a compilation of cover songs perfomed by the Drive-By Trucker’s. The original compiler was (and is) of unknown origin but the compilation has just been begging for a follow-up.

Enter Smitty from the DBT mailing list. He’s taken the liberty of assembling a new collection of covers songs culled from the numerous live DBT shows freely available on the internet. He is supposed to have a Vol. 3 already near completion as well as a collection of unreleased DBT originals. I dunno about you, but I’m looking forward to those as well.

Here is the track listing:

  1. Rockin in the Free World (Patterson on lead) (Neil Young)
  2. Holland, 1945 (Neutral Milk Hotel)
  3. I Walk The Line (Johnny Cash)
  4. Mama Bake a Pie (Tom T. Hall)
  5. Louisiana 1927 (Randy Newman)
  6. Glad & Sorry (The Faces)
  7. Everybody Needs Love (Eddie Hinton)
  8. Lonely Women Make Good Lovers (Spooner Oldham)
  9. I’m Your Puppet w/Kelly Hogan (Spooner Oldham)
  10. Where’s Eddie? (Eddie Hinton)
  11. These Arms of Mine (Otis Redding)
  12. D-I-V-O-R-C-E (Tammy Wynette)
  13. I’m in Love with a Girl (Big Star) (Summer Cousins version)
  14. Dressed in White (Malcolm Holcombe)
  15. All These Years (Sawyer Brown) (Summer Cousins version)
  16. Quaalude banter
  17. 867-5309 (Tommy Tutone)

You can download the entire collection here.

  1. This makes me really excited about the annual Athens Homecoming shows. I’ve stopped keeping up with the DBT boards so thanks for posting this!

  2. Awesome! Woke up to this in my inbox as well. Does anyone know if Volume 1 is still floating around for download?

    And if you haven’t seen it, there is an awesome (in my view) video cover of DBT doing Phil Collins In The Air Tonight on my site. Apparently it’s a love it or hate it thing.

  3. Very cool offering! Just a couple of wks ago, a few of us were trading YouTube links for covers done by DBR or Patterson Hood. So great timing with a full compilation.

  4. i saw a picture of a 9B t-shirt on another blog.how would a person go about perchasing one of them…than you very much.
