Sticks and Stones

I noted recently that I'd acquired Henley's latest solo CD, Cass County.  Here's one of the songs from the CD, performed live at ACL:



23 years after Walkaway Joe.  On the CD, Yearwood sings harmony only, but in this performance, it's an actual duet.

Is that a recommendation? Asking cause I'm a Henley fan too (so I don't really need a recommendation) -- as we speak I'm surfing over to Youtube and starting a DL.

Let's go down to the Sunset Bar and watch the working girls...

Definitely.

It's a bit of a shift in the sense that it (the album) has a country theme to it. But the writing - as well as performances - represent some of Henley's best, and are very much in the arc of EOTI, Actual Miles, and Inside Job. A few of the songs could also just as easily have been included on Long Road out of Eden.

Initially, I had an abridged version checked out from the library, but have since purchased the deluxe edition with 4 additional songs - well worth it - including the whimsical She Sang Hymns Out of Tune.
