There's a nice post about Porter Wagoner and his Bottom of the Bottle LP over at No Such Thing As Was. I wasn't even thinking about country and western, but after listening to the three tunes streaming over there, I buckled. No reason to fight it. Polished forlorn country it is.
About that image: Dave Alvin comes home from drinking one night, and passes out. When he wakes up, he opens his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a Porter Wagoner LP cover, at an angle, and says "There's my look. I'm gonna look like that." It happened. I'm sure of it. That's what I thought when I saw that portion of a Porter Wagoner LP at an angle. Spittin' image.
