Deluxe CD/DVD Edition includes bonus DVD containing interviews, acoustic performances and vintage footage.
In January 1972 a newly formed grassroots band The Flatlanders (comprised of the nucleus of Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Butch Hancock) travelled to Tommy Allsup's Odessa, TX studio at the urging of a local radio DJ. The 14 songs recorded on reel-to-reel tape arguably marked the birth of alternative country music. In celebration of their 40th anniversary together, the esteemed founding fathers of Americana will release a collection of these recordings as the Odessa Tapes. Thought lost for nearly four decades, the Odessa Tapes' pristine recordings capture, without any Polish, the special blend of Country, Folk, Roots and Cosmic energy The Flatlanders pioneered.
