WEEKLY GIVEAWAY
Giveaway Prize
This week 2 lucky WUMB Members will win a copy of the CD "Terraplane" by Steve Earle and the Dukes!

The winners will be announced on the morning of Friday February 12.
Giveaway Info

Terraplane takes its title from the 1930s Hudson Motor Car Company of Detroit model, which also inspired the Robert Johnson song "Terraplane Blues." It is Earle's 16th studio album since the release of his highly influential 1986 debut Guitar Town. As its title suggests, the album is very much a blues record, a third of which was written while Earle toured Europe alone for five weeks with just a guitar, a mandolin and a backpack.

Earle fully embraces his inner bluesman on Terraplane, taking an old-school approach on tunes that tap into everything from Big Joe Williams ("You're the Best Lover That I Ever Had") to a fiddle-flecked jugband sound ("Ain't Nobody's Daddy Now"). But ever the iconoclast, Earle embarks on bold detours like the spoken Faustian-bargain tale "The Tennessee Kid."
