Eddy Shaver - Baptism Of Fire (repost)

Eddy Shaver - Baptism Of Fire - 2001

by Erik Hage from AMG

Eddy Shaver, who died of an overdose on December 31, 2000, at the age of 38, was a rare guitar talent. (He was planning to begin recording his first solo album on January 2, 2001.) Under the moniker Shaver, he and his father, outlaw singer/songwriter legend Billy Joe Shaver, cut a series of albums during the '90s that found usually level-headed (even jaded) critics tossing around the word masterpiece. Shaver has also played on records by Guy Clark, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson, and toured with Dwight Yoakam. Mostly, however, he is remembered for his groundbreaking work with his father.

Theirs was not an easily accepted pairing, however; early on, folks found Billy Joe Shaver's bruised hillbilly vocals and modern cowboy poetry to be an odd fit for Eddy's searing rock guitar virtuosity. And the blood alliance would push them between the cracks of country and rock to a position of much critical acclaim but little commercial success - and certainly no peers.
