I Feel Alright is the 1996 release by Steve Earle that balances his country and acoustic music roots seamlessly with his rock side. This is one of the crown jewels in Steve's long and still ongoing recording career and it includes many highlights including Feel Alright, The Unrepentant, CCKMP, and a great duet with Lucinda Williams on the album closing track "You're Still Standin' There."
This release is issued for the first time ever on vinyl in a gatefold jacket.

His songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt, Vince Gill, Shawn Colvin and Emmylou Harris.
"Earle showed he was truly back in fighting shape, and from the album's first moments he sounds ready to roar and holds nothing back... I Feel Alright shows Earle finding the courage and confidence to make a record just the way he wants, and this may be Earle's finest hour in the studio -- the production is tough, resonant, and a perfect match for the material, the players bring their A game without showboating, and Earle's rough but passionate vocals are pure, honest, and direct on every cut." -Mark Deming, allmusic.com
