Album Review

Willie Heath Neal's studio albums made the Georgia-born singer/songwriter sound like some kind of mix of the young Steve Earle's hell-raising country-rock and the Cramps' rampaging psychobilly, but the youngster wasn't up to the level of his influences yet. His fourth album is a lo-fi live recording of a representative set with his backing band, the Damned Ole Opry, and on Live from Somewhere Unknown, Neal's music finally gets its proper representation. The sound is authentically cheap, just this side of bootleg quality, with the low end and Neal's out-front vocals largely obliterating his guitar work, but the energy level is about five times higher than it is on any of Neal's studio records. Even better, Neal shows off an excellent selection of vintage covers, including a rough-edged punky take on Johnny Cash's "Big River" and a terrific heartfelt version of the classic Ernest Tubb ballad "Thanks a Lot." Newcomers are strongly advised to start here.

Neal was born on the road in a Georgia cop car in the winter of 1971, the fourth of five children in a single-parent household. Money was tight, and after trying to scrape together a buck...
