Country Drivin'

Country Drivin' cover

Dave's 1996 CD Country Drivin' has a much lighter feel than his more recent recordings, reflecting a very different background than the one that dawned in late 2000 with darker times on the horizon. Though he does take the listener through Hell's Kitchen, he mostly shares the fun of Drivin' in My Sleep Again, Fishin', and As Long As Merle is Still Haggard, even making it feel good to get caught in the Texas Rain or see a Black Snake in the Water. Clicking on the CD cover will take you to the Amazon page where you can buy a copy of the CD, and clicking on the title will take you to the Amazon page where you can buy any and all of the mp3s for the album.

Track List

1. Gospel / 2. Rusty Chains / 3. Who Shot Handsome Johnnie? / 4. Soundings / 5. Colors of Yours / 6. Just Lookin' / 7. Hell's Kitchen / 8. Texas Rain / 9. Soundings Further Out / 10. Bad Luck and Trouble / 11. Thanks a Lot / 12. As Long as Merle is Still Haggard / 13. Drivin' in My Sleep Again / 14. Fishin' / 15. Could Have Been There 16. Black Snake in the Water 17. Just a Stone

You can click on the track name to download an mp3 from Amazon. Currently Amazon does not have any copies of the CD so if you click on the image above, it takes you to the page where you can download the entire set of tracks. You can also listen to the CD on iTunes.

Note: Dave did remixes of As Long as Merle is Still Haggard and Just a Stone which appeared on Elder Street so if you click on one of those tracks, the version you find is the Elder Street one.
