Reviews:

Joe Ely has more musical credibility in oneparagraph of his bio than most labels can muster with their entire rosters combined.He started the Flatlanders with Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Butch Hancock in the early‘70s, hung with Texas songwriting legend Townes Van Zandt, and opened for MerleHaggard and the Clash—and that's just the first ten years of his career. For his14th album, Streets of Sin, Ely dishes up heaping helpings of everything thathas distinguished his long history-Tex Mex cantina rock ("95 South"), dashes ofcountry spice ("I'm on the Run Again"), blues for color (the title track), anda solid base of good old American rock and roll ("Fightin' for My Life"). Andthat's just the music. Ely's incredible lyrics read like dark, slice-of-life shortstories filled with despair and hope and infinitely believable detail. After 30+years of consistent reinvention, Joe Ely shows that he's not yet hit the bottomof his big bag of musical surprises.
