Just Townes Earle released a terrific album last year called Harlem River Blues. So terrific, in fact, that we deemed it #15 of our top 50 albums of the year. Last night, David Letterman gave Earle his network television debut, where he performed the impossibly catchy title track with Jason Isbell on lead guitar and Paul Shaffer rocking the organ.
You can watch the video below. Come for the great song, stay for Shaffer’s hilarious commentary at the end.
