The Joshua Tree

U2's The Joshua Tree in a blue grass format? Sounds crazy until you take a listen....I heard about this album on an alternative radio station and I'm delighted it's arrived on itunes! Who said re-gifting was a bad idea? U2's original album is one of the greats and the amazing lyrics shine in this format. Kudos to Earl Pickens and Family.

Terrific

There are lots of generic instrumental versions of famous songs, but these covers are thoughtfully arranged, played beautifully, and voiced well. If you love U2's album, you'll appreciate this interpretation.

A whole new way to listen

This album accomplishes two amazing things. #1 It takes the great music from Joshua Tree and presents it in a whole new light; you'll hear nuances in the words you never caught before. The musical arrangements will make you smile, make you laugh, make you say "Damn, why didn't someone perform it this way before?" I prefer this version of Bullet the Blue Sky to the original, which is quite an accomplishment.
#2 I urge you to consider buying this even if you're the sort of person who likes U2 but despises most country music. Bite the bullet. It's worth it. Trust me.
