Although, of his most recent LP (2012's Nothing’s Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now
), singer-songwriter Justin Townes Earle said, "This time I’ve gone in a Memphis-soul direction," he did not head in a Memphis direction to make
the album. The 10 tracks were recorded live, with no overdubs, in four days at Echo Mountain. That LP was released by Bloodshot Records who, this year, re-reissued Earle's '07 self-release, Yuma
. (It was first reissued in '08.) Earle returns to Asheville on Tuesday, July 23 for a show at The Grey Eagle. 8 p.m., $18/$20. http://thegreyeagle.com. Photo by Joshua Black Wilkins
