Editors’ Notes

With the two-pronged songwriting attack of Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley alternating in the writing of their albums, Drive-By Truckers have an automatically diverse attack within their Southern rock roots. Bassist Shonna Tucker serves up the barroom weeper “Dancin’ Ricky” and the addition of two Eddie Hinton tracks, (“Everybody Needs Love”, “Where’s Eddie”, with Shonna Tucker’s emotive vocals), adds a soulful strut to a band that often prefer to lope in the country-rock fields. (Hinton, who died at age 51, was a guitarist for Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding, among the many). Singer Patterson Hood defines the group’s deep country sound (“I Do Believe”, “Mercy Buckets”), but it’s Cooley’s looser way with a country tune on “Cartoon Gold” and “The Weakest Man” that relaxes the band and allows them to sound like an easeful group of experienced farmhands. The Deluxe Edition includes a cover of Vic Chesnutt’s hilarious and poignant “When I Ran Off and Left Her” and the band original “I Hear You Hummin’,” along with acoustic videos of Hood performing “Everybody Needs Love” and Cooley performing “Pulaski.”

Customer Reviews

Oh dear! What went wrong guys?

I love the Truckers, seen 'em live in the UK and have all their albums on my Ipod. After the scorcher that was 'The Big To Do' I was really looking forward to this new release. So I bought it eagerly and listened through once, twice, three times. And my heart sank. The highlight of the album is 'Used to be a cop' which they pre-released months ago. 'Everybody needs love' is a nice enough track, and 'The Thanksgiving Filter' hints at the Truckers at their satirical best. But the rest falls way below their standard. So what went wrong guys? Too many of the tracks sound lethargic and dull as though the gang lost interest in the whole project at an early stage. There isn't a single rocker on the whole album and, loathe as I am to have to say it, this is dull. Perhaps the boys (and girl, of course) have been trying to do too much, but this album isn't ging to win them any new fans. Hopefully, it won't lose them any old ones.

I'm a die hard DBT fan, but I just can't get into this!

I'm an avid fan of the Drive By Truckers, have all their albums along with those by Jason Isbell and Patterson Hood, and I've been hanging off my seat in anticipation for the new album, 'Go Go Boots'.
I really don't know what to say, but I just cannot 'get into' this album at all! Like the previous reviewer, I've listened to this album a half dozen times, but the 'fire' just isn't there! What really winds me up is that I just can't put a finger on what is missing. I can't figure it out! 'Used To Be A Cop' rises above the rest, and is good enough to be on 'The Big To Do', but that's it for me...
Hope DBT change direction for their next album. 'Brighter Than Creations Dark' and 'Southern Rock Opera' both blew me away, and they are very different albums, so they CAN do it!!

Go-Go Boots

I love this band and their great music. If you want to buy one track buy (I) used to be a cop. It's magnificent.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Boasting a mix of Southern pride, erudite lyrics, and a muscled three-guitar attack, Drive-By Truckers became one of the most well-respected alternative country-rock acts of the 2000s. Led by frontman Patterson Hood and featuring a rotating cast of Georgia and Alabama natives, the band celebrated the South while refusing to paint over its spotty past. History, folklore, politics, and character studies all shared equal space in the Truckers catalog, which offered up its first blast of gutsy, twangy...
