Originally issued on Lighning Rod Records in 2012, Live From Alabama is the first full-length live album from Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit. Live From Alabama was recorded in Isbell's home state during a couple of sold out shows in August 2012 at the WorkPlay Theater in Birmingham, AL and Crossroads in Huntsville, AL. The album's set list showcases the diversity of styles the band can ease into and the versatility and skill of their musicianship. Add in the passion and sheer intensity of their performances, plus a three-piece horn section, and you have an album that captures a band in their true element at their prime. Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit (keyboardist Derry deBorja, bassist Jimbo Hart and drummer Chad Gamble) perform favorites from Isbell's entire body of work, as well as a few nuggets, including a no-holds-barred rendition of Neil Young's "Like A Hurricane."
