Not just whistling Dixie: The Drive-By Truckers career with the New West Records label is righteously celebrated by way of Ugly Buildings, Whores & Politicians Greatest Hits 1998 – 2009, a sixteen track CD / Vinyl compilation which was released Monday 3rd October 2011.

Taken from eight albums and compiled by the DBT’s Patterson Hood, Ugly Buildings offers yet more proof of their magisterial presence in contemporary rock and roll. The album is annotated by seasoned US journo David Fricke, no less.

Those who have arrived late on the DBT bus care of the acclaimed Go Go Boots will find a motherlode of Southern Rock nuggets across the albums’ sixteen tracks.

One of our favourite releases of the year…
