about

Since his emergence in Nashville in 1981 with the Scorchers, Jason Ringenberg has blazed a trail through country music with punk attitude and the heart of a dusty road poet. With The Scorchers, Ringenberg set the high water mark for country rock performers, laying waste to gritty bar rooms and fancy stages from Nashville to L.A. A key patriarch of both the alt-country and Americana explosions of the 1990s, Jason is roots music royalty and his creative lineage is detailed here on the two-disc collection Best Tracks and Side Tracks 1979-2007. The set includes tracks from all phases of Ringenberg's storied solo career - new versions of Scorchers classics, re-mastered original solo material, rarities and new unreleased tracks. Re-worked Scorchers classic, "Shop It Around" starts out the Best Tracks disc and "Help There's a Fire" from Side Tracks represents Jason's pre-Scorchers band Shakespeare's Riot, making this the definitive Jason Ringenberg compendium. The set even includes material from Ringenberg's children's music persona, Farmer Jason. Built for hardcore fans and country music historians alike, Best Tracks and Side Tracks 1979-2007 sums up the career of one of roots music's most influential artists.
