In September 1986, Steve Earle's first album was shaking up Nashville, and country music circles, like nobody else had done since Willie, Waylon and the original Outlaw gang. This show, his first appearance on Austin City Limits, captures the excitement and free spirit of the seminal Guitar Town, which was nothing less than a collection of personal odysseys. He was certainly a musical renegade from day one, and that's one thing about him that hasn't changed. This performance displays the vintage Steve Earle sound that paved the way for a new generation of country rockers willing to buck the Nashville system. New West Records is proud to reissue this quintessential installment in the Live From Austin, TX performance series on 180g double vinyl.
