Rodney Parker & 50 Peso Reward: Live in the Living Room

Rodney Parker & 50 Peso Reward is a powerful live band but the Texas outfit’s two studio albums, Blow The Soot Out and The Lonesome Dirge, as good as both are, have failed to capture the group’s full abilities. This 13-song set, recorded at the band’s headquarters in Corinth, Texas, gets listeners as close to the actual live show as possible and captures one of the most powerful live acts in the state of Texas today. Loaded with Parker originals such as “Firefight”, “Highway Blues”, “The Apology” and “I’m Never Getting Married”, plus a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Atlantic City”, Live In The Living Room will suffice for those who have never seen these lads in the flesh. And, if you have, this will tide you over between the band’s visits to your lonesome town.
