Over the past year, One Horse Town Productions has been working on a series of mixes documenting the history of alternative country music from the 1960’s through the 1990’s. If you’ve followed closely you may have already seen earlier versions of Volumes 1, 2, and 4. At long last, Volume 3—which focuses on the 1980’s—is finally finished.
Here is the complete set. Enjoy!
Volume 1: We’ve All Got Wheels (Country Rock)
This volume covers the late-60’s/early-70’s country rock scene, centered in Southern California. Featured artists include Gram Parsons and Gene Clark.
Volume 2: Amarillo Highway (Texas Progressive Country)
This volume documents the progressive country music that grew out of Texas in the 70’s. Featured artists include Jerry Jeff Walker and Townes Van Zandt.
Volume 3: Keep On Moving (New Wave, Cowpunk & Roots)
This volume samples the diverse country-inspired sounds (many now nearly forgotten) that came out of the 80’s. Featured artists include Jason & The Scorchers and Lone Justice.
Volume 4: Looking For A Way Out (No Depression)
This volume covers the “No Depression” scene that developed in the 90’s, when the term “alt country” was born. Featured artists include Uncle Tupelo and Lucinda Williams.
