Synopsis

Amazon.com
On the ambitious El Corazón, Steve Earle enlisted the Seattle-based punk outfit for the thundering "N.Y.C.", perhaps Earle's most ferocious performance. This Sub Pop EP furthers that punk/country collision, but the union is brief and inconclusive. Earle kicks off with a biting, acoustic reading of the Suckers' weird "Creepy Jackalope Eye" and almost makes sense out of lines like "I've got a jackalope face / I'm a jackalope guy." The Supersuckers then scorch through Earle's "Angel Is the Devil," a frantic rock-out that was probably more fun to record than it is to hear. The Stones' "Before They Make Me Run" marks their final collaboration, and though the song feels truncated, the lyrics are well suited to Earle's snarling delivery. The rest of the EP is filled out by original album versions of "Creepy Jackalope Eye" (from La Mano Cornuda) and "Angel Is the Devil" (from Train a Comin'). --Roy Kasten

CD Reviews

A small gem
Dale Wetzel | Bismarck, ND United States | 12/01/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Earle's cover of "Before They Make Me Run," a Keith Richards song from the Rolling Stones' "Some Girls" album, is worth the price by itself. "Angel is the Devil" is also excellent.For those of you who like Earle and the Rolling Stones, I would suggest buying a compilation album called "Cover You: A Tribute to the Rolling Stones." It has Steve Earle and the Dukes covering "Dead Flowers," the song on the Stones' Sticky Fingers album. In my opinion, Steve Earle is one of the few singers who can do Rolling Stones songs better than the Stones themselves."
Wish there were more

"My only problem with this disc is I wish there were more of it. I ordered it because I liked their collaboration on 'NYC' (from El Corazon), and it doesn't disappoint in quality at all. Especially 'Before they make me run' (maybe Steve should do an album of Keith Richards covers - just for fun). Definately a must for Steve completists."
A must for Steve Earle fanatics

"All Steve Earle fans need to locate a copy of this ep. A great rocking cover of Kieth Richard's "Before They Make Me Run" and the bizarre "Creepy Jackalope Eye" make this recording a must have for Earle fans."
