Steve Earle: El Corazon

Though Earle’s prodigious run of essential albums has shown recent signs of coming to a halt, the man’s post-prison artistic production is nothing short of legendary. Earle’s songwriting talent has cast him variously as a bluegrass traditionalist, political activist, and confessional troubadour of worthy of Blood on the Tracks-era Dylan. Though any one Earle’s remarkable albums could justifiably be included on the list, El Corazon offers the best view of his scope as a musician. The political conscious is there on “Christmas in Washington,” and Earle offers pure country gems such as “The Other Side of Town” and “Fort Worth Blues,” but the real power of El Corazon is in the collaboration. Earle pairs with artists as diverse Seattle’s Supersuckers and legendary bluegrass artist Del McCoury on songs that show the vitality and diversity of the alt-country genre.
Fame, fortune, power, titties. People say these are the most crucial things in life, but you can have a pocket full o' gold and it doesn't mean sh*t if you don't have someone to share that gold with. Seems simple. Yet it's an important lesson to learn. Even lone wolves run in packs sometimes.
