Greg Dulli - Dangerous Highway 7"

I don't care if I had no clue who Eddie Hinton was, I do care that here are 2 new 7"s from some fantastic musicians: Greg Dulli and The Drive-By Truckers. Now, apparently Eddie Hinton was "a highly respected musician and songwriter who played lead guitar for the Muscle Shoals Sound Rhythm Section in the late 60’s, and worked as a session guitarist for Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley and many more. Hinton passed away in 1995 at the age of 51." Apparently, he was also a close friend of Bob Dylan.

What we have here are tribute 7"s, the first in a series called "Dangerous Highway: A Tribute To The Songs of Eddie Hinton". The first 7" in the series features Greg Dulli (Gutter Twins, Afghan Whigs, Twilight Singers) covering “Hard Luck Guy” and “Cover Me”. The second installment sees The Drive-By Truckers covering “Where’s Eddie” and “Everybody Needs Love”. Get one or both of these 7"s which are available from Shake It.
