Drive-By Truckers 

The Fine Print (New West)

The Truckers' previous albums have tended to be cinematic in their way with characters and settings. This set includes two alternate takes and two covers, including Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" with a boost from three singers trading verses and, of course, extra guitar. Admirers may gasp that a song as anthemic as "Rebels" has not surfaced before. "George Jones Talkin' Cell Phone Blues" could be the funniest thing the band has done. Southern hardship and resilience is a recurring aspect of the Truckers' richest songs. It takes many forms, like a soldier being wheeled home in "Mama Bake a Pie." Even when cleaning out drawers, the Truckers manage to tell a story.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
