Jason & The Scorchers: Lost & Found (1985)
There are plenty of amped-up country-tinged tracks here perfect for a fast drive with the windows down, most notably opener "Both Sides of the Line," "Last Time Around," album stand-out "White Lies," and "Lost Highway." But the band offsets the frenzy with a few twangier, mid-tempo tracks, like the almost straight-country "Blanket of Sorrow," the engaging country-pop of "Shop It Around," and a couple quieter acoustic tunes.
While later bands like Uncle Tupelo get plenty of well-deserved credit for their post-punk Americana updates, the Scorchers are criminally underrated, and their passionate alt.country revivalism deserves another look.
The CD (and Spotify) versions kick off with 1983's Fervor EP, which is also pretty damn great, particularly a blistering cover of Dylan's "Absolutely Sweet Marie" and the endlessly entertaining "Help There's a Fire."
