Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore backed by the Guilty Ones
West Hollywood, California
July 26, 2018

Roots music legends, Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore, have been friends for 30 years, but only
recently realized they had never played music with each other before. So in 2017, Grammy winner
Alvin and Grammy nominee Gilmore, decided to hit the highway to swap songs, tell stories, and
share their life experiences. Though Texas born Gilmore was twice named Country Artist of the Year
by Rolling Stone, and California native Alvin first came to fame in the hard rocking rhythm and blues
band The Blasters, they discovered that their musical roots in old blues and folk music are exactly
the same. In these spontaneous shows, audiences enjoyed classic original compositions from the two,
but also songs from a wide spectrum of songwriters and styles from Merle Haggard to Sam Cooke to the Young Bloods.
Mutually energized and inspired by these performances, Dave and Jimmie agreed 'Let's make a record!' So they did.
They are on the road again in 2018...this time with a full band and some new stories to share.
Performing at the world famous "Troubadour" this audience recording lets you experience one of those shows.

* Someone ran into me and smashed into the battery box in my back pocket causing a dropout.
shortly after he came crashing back through the crowd and into me again adding a second and even worse dropout.
Removed the volume spikes and removed a moment of dead air to reduce the disturbance.
Oh Well it's not that bad but it is there.
