Shaver: The Earth Rolls On
Buy! - (New West)
The last album pairing the legendary Texas singer-songwriter Billy Joe Shaver with his guitarist son Eddy (who passed away on New Year's Eve from a heroin overdose) is another winning combination of rowdy roots rock, roadhouse blues and tender ballads. The pair's often tumultuous relationship and the recent deaths of Billy Joe's wife and mother give the songs added poignancy, but they also stand on their own as some of Billy Joe's finest, blending earthy vulgarity with deep spiritual yearnings. 4/15/2001 - Don Yates
