Warner Bros. Records will release remastered versions of six classic Steve Earle albums next month, beginning with a trio of reissues on September 22: The Mountain, Earle’s GRAMMY-nominated 1999 collaboration with the legendary Del McCoury Band, the GRAMMY®-nominated Transcendental Blues, originally released in 2000, and Earle’s 2002 compilation album, Sidetracks. All six albums – originally released via E-Squared/Artemis Records – will be available in vinyl and CD formats.
Following on September 29 will be 2002’s Jerusalem, which contains the controversial “John Walker’s Blues,” Earle’s 2003 live set, Just An American Boy, and his GRAMMY-winning 2004 album, The Revolution Starts Now. This will mark the first time that Sidetracks and Just An American Boy have been released on vinyl. In addition, a remastered version of 1997’s El Corazón will be released for the first time on vinyl on November 24 (Black Friday).
