Son Volt "Trace" 20th Anniversary Edition

$ 24.99

20th Anniversary Edition of the classic 
Son Volt album 


After touring in support of their 1993 masterpiece, Anodyne, the seminal alternative 
country band Uncle Tupelo split up over long-simmering creative differences
between co-leaders Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy. Tweedy recruited much of the
band to form Wilco, while Farrar teamed up with original Tupelo drummer Mike Heidorn
to form Son Volt, the more tradition-minded of the two Tupelo offshoots. Joined by brothers
Jim (bass) and Dave Boquist (guitar, fiddle, banjo, fiddle, steel guitar), the band signed
to Warner Bros. and released its debut album, Trace, in 1995. It was greeted with
excellent reviews from most critics, offering a set of stark, subtle, mostly downbeat
songs that drew from traditional country, folk, and roots rock. The single "Drown" was successful
on both college and rock radio, and the band subsequently added unofficial fifth member
Eric Heywood on mandolin and pedal steel for its second album, 1997's Straightaways.
