Robert Earl Keen - The Rose Hotel

It's been a few years without any new music from REK which is a shame as he is one of the great (mostly unrecognized) songwriters in America. I got a preview copy of The Rose Hotel yesterday and have played it twice already. It's REK. It's instantly recognizable and at comfortable like a good old pair of boots (obligatory boots reference). Just buy it. The album is great and the only thing I am bummed about is that I will be missing the show at NYC's Town Hall in October (I have tickets to both nights of the Hall of Fame shows at MSG). Here's a clip of the title track. Now get on out there and buy the CD which is out this Tuesday.
