and then there’s the supremely talented Jason Isbell


Jason Isbell covers “Just to Know What You’ve Been Dreaming” by Will Johnson at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, GA, on March 20, 2008. With Browan Lollar on guitar.

I still remember the first time i saw Jason play. there was this baby faced boy onstage at a Drive-By Truckers show a long while back. i think i stood there with my arms crossed, shaking my head at this child onstage with one of my favorite bands of the time. then he proceeded to make the band even better than it was with a string of crazy great albums.

i don’t auto-buy the DBTs anymore. the rock show sort of lost its luster after Jason left. but memories of those sloppy DBT / Slobberbone shows remain.

and i follow Jason’s music avidly. such a talent.
