Drive-By Truckers' <i>Alabama Ass Whuppin'</i> Reissue Includes Vinyl Release

The southern rock and country ensemble has announced the reissue of Alabama Ass Whuppin’. ATO Records will reissue the band’s first live recording, and third album, on September 10, 2013. The album was recorded live in clubs across the southeast and was originally released in 2000 and has been out of print for years. The album has been remastered and includes updated artwork by Wes Freed. This will also be the first time the album has been available on vinyl.

Alabama Ass Whuppin’ documents a specific time for the band. “This was our third album and the connecting thread between our earlier work and the band that we went on to become later. It’s a documentation of a period in time that I wouldn’t go back to for all the money in the world, but I’m proud of the shows that we played and the songs that we wrote, “ said Patterson Hood.

The band is currently in the studio recording their 12th album. ATO Records will release the album in early 2014.
