Joe West and the Sinners – Jamie Was A Boozer

  • Label: Baby Black Panda
  • Format: CD
  • Released: 2015
  • Genre: Americana

Originally released in 1998 this Americana cult classic received a rare 4 star review in The Austin Chronicle. Joe West is a self-described country singer and a little punk rock and roll with a beatnik poet somewhere in his soul.

His fans LOVE his quirky hard to pigeonhole brand of music. This re-issue of Joe’s first major release, which has been out of print for some time, includes 3 previously unreleased bonus tracks.
