World's Best Online Record Collection
Joe Ely is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist born 1947 in Amarillo, Texas. Ely's music blends honky-tonk, Texas country, Tex-Mex and rock and roll. In 1970 Ely formed The Flatlanders with fellow Texans Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Butch Hancock, and that band was active up until 2009. As a soloist, Ely has released many fine albums which have transitioned from his early rock and roll sound to a more laid back Country Tex-Mex style. Outstanding albums include Joe Ely, Honky Tonk Masquerade, Letter to Laredo, Live Shots and the 2018 archival release The Lubbock Tapes: Full Circle. Ely's most recent 2020 album Love in the Midst of Mayhem is also highly recommended.
