Aside from Joe Ely's hugely influential hold on Joe Strummer of The Clashand his own fascinating road to notoriety, the man's music remains largelyunacknowledged outside of his loyal fan base. Such savage neglect can only be met with bewilderment considering his impact on punk and country music and his rebel spirit that keeps both genres alive and interesting. KGSR-FM's broadcast of Ely's intimate solo appearance for the Austin Chamber of Commerce Star Award on December 3, 1993, survives as testament to his grueling schedule and commitment to rock and roll as not only a music form, but a way of life. Ely's fiery spirituality is in abundance in his performance here and signifies his own statement that "Muscle is muscle. Put that with riffs and wisdom and you've got something."Professionally remastered original FM broadcast with background liners and rare archival photos.
