Some die-hard Drive-By Truckers (DBT) fans were a little put off by the Athens, GA unit becoming slightly more countrified on their last studio album, Brighter Than Creation’s Dark. Many welcomed the change-up (including myself) but a forthcoming odds-and-sodds compilation, entitled The Fine Print (A Collection Of Oddities and Rarities 2003-2008), looks to be tailor-made for devotees of the band’s more Southern-rock-centric period. DBT’s been exploring that “Southern Thing” for 13 years and during seven albums they’ve amass quite a bit of extra material. Justly, the DBT crew recently dug through the New West Records vaults, with the helping hand of longtime producer Dave Barbe, to spit-shine some forgotten cuts. As far as the aforementioned Southern rock emphasis is concerned, The Fine Print (Wes Freed‘s longstanding DBT artwork agreement continues to the right) will feature seven tracks from the highly fertile Dirty South era. The LP also contains four covers, including “Rebels” by Tom Petty, which the band recorded originally for the TV show King of the Hill, and “Like a Rolling Stone” by Bob Dylan, which gave Shonna Tucker her inaugural lead DBT vocal. The Fine Print is available on CD, double vinyl, and digital download on September 1st.

On July 7th, New West will also release DBT’s entire September 26, 2008 Austin City Limits performance as a CD/DVD combination. The Live From Austin, TX performance was during the Brighter Than Creation’s Dark tour. Thirteen old and new tracks, were filmed in juicy Hi-Def and recorded in tire squealing 5.1 Surround Sound. The band line-up featured on the video was Patterson Hood, Mike Cooley, Shonna Tucker, John Neff, Brad Morgan, and Jay Gonzalez. Speaking of live performances, Booker T and DBT are performing at Bonnaroo‘s Which stage this Saturday (June 13th). In other Drive-By Truckers news, lead singer/DBT co-founder Patterson Hood‘s is prepping and touring in support of his new solo album Murdering Oscar (and other love songs) for its June 23rd release.
