Joe Ely gets "Satisfied at Last"

Tuesday, November 2, 2010 – Joe Ely recently released new tracks on iTunes. The upload signals the near arrival of his forthcoming album "Satisfied At Last," his first studio release in almost four years.

Set for release in early 2011, "Satisfied At Last" (Rack 'Em Records), will include the two newly release tracks, Mockingbird Hill and You Can Bet I'm Gone. Ely recently performed the new songs during last weeks' A Prairie Home Companion show which, in addition to it's normal nationwide radio broadcast, was "cinecast" in movie theaters across the country. Ely, along with Sarah Watkins and Old Crow Medicine Show, were host Garrison Keillor's guests for the event.

Ely's last studio album, "Happy Songs From Rattlesnake Gulch," was released on Rack 'Em Records in 2007. Ely has quietly released several catalog works, including, "Silver City" ( 2007) and "Live Chicago 1987," (2008), a live bootleg recording of his 1980s' era band featuring Bobby Keys (Rolling Stones), Jimmy Pettit, Davis McLarty and guitar player, David Grissom. He also released his acclaimed live album, "LIVE Cactus!", with accordion maestro Joel Guzman in early 2008. A year later, along with his band mates, Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Butch Hancock, The Flatlanders released, "Hills and Valleys."

While the title might suggest otherwise, the hastily released "Love in the Midst of Mayhem" finds ...
CD review - The Lubbock Tapes: Full Circle When you hear some artists' early demos, a phrase that might come to mind is, 'Well, they had great potential.' You won't say that, though, when you hear Joe Ely's demos for his first album, and some songs that later appeared on his third album. No, with "The Lubbock Tapes: Full Circle," you hear an artist that arrived fully formed and in his prime. You can hear Ely's struggle to graduate from talented Texan, to Nashville (star hopeful) with the downhearted ...
CD review - Panhandle Rambler Joe Ely shows no signs of slowing down on his ninth release. Writing all but two of the dozen songs over the past three or four years, Ely is at his best here, painting pictures with words of the Texas that he calls home. The title belies the scope of this album, with its contents illustrating a panorama of Texas landscape and citizenry (legal and otherwise), including those from just south of the border as well. Standouts abound: "Four Ol' Brokes," a tale of poker, train yards, ...
