If: Cowpunk/Alt-Country Edition

Jason & The Scorchers: If the Money Talks


My run in with The Bottle Rockets earlier this week has had me in a mood to relive the glory days of the alt-country movement with some of the giants of the genre. In perusing my iTunes playlists tonight, I discovered several "If" songs from those early years.

Not so much commentary here since the new week starts in about a half hour here in the East. I would just like to point out, though, the sheer energy and abandon that is present on these tracks. The Scorchers track comes from 1985, The '97's from '94, and Whiskeytown from '96. I truly wish I had been cognizant of the movement back in those days.
