Steve Earle – The Galway Girl (2000)
Wonderful track taken from Steve Earle’s Transcendental Blues LP released in 2000. Featuring Sharon Shannon on the accordion.
Steve Earle is, of course, from Texas and not from Ireland. I first became aware of him in 1987 when his breakthrough single Guitar Town appeared as the first track on the legendary NME cassette “The Tape With No Name” (check here for details and tracks from the cassette featured on my other blog ….).
Just love this track for its life affirming spirit and a fantastic melody that simply never relents ….
The LP track then a superb live version from a few years ago.
