Overview

I FEEL ALRIGHT is the album that brought Steve Earle all the way back from years of drug abuse and self-destructive personal and professional behavior. Before toppling into the abyss, though, he got control of his demons and set about reclaiming his hard-rocking, leather-jacketed prole legacy. Coming in the wake of the dense, crackling, acoustic-driven SLOW TRAIN COMING, 1996's I FEEL ALRIGHT sounded as if Earle were picking up where 1988's tender-tough masterpiece COPPERHEAD ROAD left off, without any hitches in the timeline. "I've been to hell and now I'm back again/I feel alright," he claims on the title track. And then he proceeds to prove it all night. "Hard Core Troubadour," the rough-and-tumble narrative "Billy and Bonnie," and a fierce, rocking duet with Lucinda Williams, "You're Still Standin' There," are of a piece with the most incendiary work produced by the brash, young, out-of-control Earle. It's a moment a lot of Earle-watchers feared might never come again. But it did, and it's something to behold. Like the artist himself.
