Long Out of Circulation Third Album Remastered for Vinyl with 13 Bonus Tracks!
Vic Chesnutt was the real deal, a man who lived for music and who tirelessly deployed his impish, surly, witty, unflinching perspective in hundreds of songs featuring brilliantly unique wordsmithery and a profound playfulness that thumbed its nose at a life of seriously hard knocks. Vic's prolific writing – chock of full of real irony, wonderful turns of phrase, humor, rage and tenderness, brutal literalism and ornate observation – constituted a truly original voice and reflected a truly indomitable spirit.
Faithfully remastered complete with thirteen bonus tracks, New West Records is proud to present Vic Chesnutt's influential third full-length Drunk (1993). Recorded over five total days, Drunk is marked by sparse instrumentation and minimal studio trickery that accent the depth of Chesnutt's idiosyncratic lyrics and storytelling style. Drunk bonus tracks include B-sides, selections from an Inner Ear session and recordings from a 1994 Radio Holland performance. Out of circulation for nearly 20 years, Drunk is pressed on double 180g vinyl and includes an accompanying download card.
