New West Records began releasing music in 1998 and one of the labels earliest successes came in the form of their partnership with the Drive-By Truckers and the music that this historic band would create. With more than 1 million records sold across the New West — DBT catalog it is safe to say that there is a solid and ever growing fanbase for this culturally impactful band. New West is proud to celebrate more than 15 years worth of music and releases by FINALLY releasing the Drive-By Trucker back catalog on color vinyl.
"The Dirty South is the sixth album by Muscle Shoals, Alabama-based Drive-By Truckers. While previous Southern rock bands have celebrated certain regional mythologies, this quintet revels in the towering glory of small, gritty realities. They can kick up a righteous storm, as on the country lick-filled opener 'Where the Devil Don't Stay,' or the swamp and fuzzy 'Lookout Mountain.' However, within the latter is a daunting verse: 'If I throw myself off Lookout Mountain, No more for my soul to keep, I wonder who will drive my car, I wonder if my Mom will weep.' It's clear these guys deliver emotional wallops at every turn. 'Carl Perkins' Cadillac' honors the honesty of Sam Phillips, while writhing in the melancholy of changing times and circumstances." — Amazon.com
