Return To The Valley Of Rain

Bildergebnis für Giant Sand

Back in 1985 Giant Sand released their first record Valley Of Rain a forgotten nugget of Americana music. Howe Gelb showed his talent on writing songs on this album. Many artists look back to their first record with a smile and often they deny their early days. Gelb took the other way and played the whole first album live in a club in Austin. The result is a superb country/Americana album. The songs are played faster and the guitar is more dominant than before. I saw them live a couple of time long time ago and this albums shows well that they are live much better than in a studio.
