V/A - Troubled Troubadours (RSD LP)
From the people who brought you Hillbillies In Hell…
Lust, murder, assassination, alienation, war, depravity and credit cards.
Troubled times demand troubled troubadours. And here they are – 16 seismic slices of misfortune, desperation, woe and plain high-weirdness – delivered by a stellar cast of country music luminaries and a host of valiant battered journeymen.
In that seminal epoch of the late-1960s and early-1970s – the times were a changin’ – and it wasn’t always for the better.
Autocide, infanticide, deicide, suicide…and the puzzling desire to transmigrate into a stuffed toy are just some of the delights and low-lights presented for your primordial listening pleasure.
Look out trouble, here we come…
