Although only recently joining the impressive roster at Lost Highway Records, Drive-By Truckers' two-disc tour-de-force Southern Rock Opera is already something of a legend in indie circles. Whether born of madness or genius (to be fair, most likely both), Southern Rock Opera explores - and attempts to untangle - what the Truckers' Patterson Hood refers to as "the duality of the Southern thing" through the tragic career arc of a semi-mythical Southern rock band, one "Betamax Guillotine." Loosely based on Southern rock's star-crossed heroes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Betamax Guillotine takes a bumpy, pitfall-laden path to the top, crashing cars into trees, hoisting lighters, draining bottles, selling gear and checking in with the likes of Neil Young, Skynyrd, Bear Bryant, AC/DC and George Wallace en route to its tragic fiery conclusion. Contains 16 Page Opera Libretto
