999: The Louvin Brothers – Tragic Song of Life (1956)

This album, whose cover features two guys in some type of cowboy get-up, features a lot of shuffle beats and what I was describe as country blue. I’m pretty sure there is someone blowing into a jug for a “bass” sound. I wonder if these guys ever played any other styles of music or if it was always sad sounding harmony driven country brother blues. I’m sure the lyrics tell some type of great story but I honestly just couldn’t get into it.

Bottom line: listen to one song, they all sound the same
