    Yep, it is a David Allan Coe kind of day.


    What I find interesting is when I am in a "No mood for bullcrap" kind of day, I tend to gravitate towards Coe and Pantera...and They were/are personally close. Even thought they are not the same kind of music, they are the same kind of mood.

    If you have never....please do. If you dont get it, KMA.

    I am going to pet on my ol' blue cattle dog, get in my Truck and head off to Luckenback. As long as I can do that I am still free and alive but I am grinding down on the first one. I will be seen drinking a Shiner Bock and not giving a single damn!

    I love David Allen Coe and most other outlaw country folks. Here's something a lot of old Coe fans may have missed out on (not Rabbi, I'm sure). David Allen Coe with 3 members of Pantera playing rocking music with D.A.C's country voice, I love it!

    I grew up listening to DAC. My fave is "If That Ain't Country".

    Luckenback always reminds me, for some strange reason, of Jerry Jeff Walker back in the 70's.

    David Allen Coe always reminds me of Steve Goodman's You never even called me by my name, also an early 70s tune.

    Steve Goodman always reminds me of Arlo Guthries cover of the City of New Orleans, hmm also a 70s tune... (showing my age and collegiate musical tastes I reckon) I could go on associating one thing after another music wise. Better stop now...

    Thanks for bringing about my own little nostalgia trip Rabbi, glad you had a peaceful time in Luckenback.

    I think that strange reason may be him being mentioned in the Waylon Jennings song, Luckenbach Texas.

    As I have read this thread and contributed a little, I realize Rabbi is much younger than you (Baba Louie) or I and may not remember when Steve goodman was alive. Great artist that died too early of cancer (leukemia). I loved all his work with his good friend John Prine.

    David Allen Coe was a true "Outlaw Country" performer that had numerous great songs but life and the "law" finally caught up with him. Great singer but no one to look up to !!

    Steve Goodman wrote and performed the best version of "The City of New Orleans" but, Arloes ended up the most popular.
    Listen to Steve Goodmans' version.

    This photo was taken in August '73 inside the Luckenbach General Store during the making of Jerry Jeff's classic ¡Viva Terlingua! (Photo by Jim McGuire.) It's inside the double fold of the album.

    Luckenbach is a special place. While it has been made famous, nothing has really changed out there. It is still a little crap hole of a stop on the side of the road. Clapboard store, dance hall, stage and snack shack....with a lot of room.

    I love Outlaw and Texas music and few things make me as happy as a drive through the Texas Hill Country. Luckenbach answers the call.
