The Ballad of Charlie & Ira

If you know anything about real country music at all, then you already know the Louvin Brothers quite well (and if you don't, you most definitely should familiarize yourself via some recent reissues from the wonderful Light In The Attic label). Famed close harmony practitioners, the brothers Louvin were a heavy influence on Gram Parsons, who introduced the Byrds, Emmylou Harris, and the Rolling Stones to their spiritual songs ("The Christian Life") and murder ballads ("Knoxville Girl").
Co-written by the surviving brother, Charlie, Satan is Real is the compelling saga of fraternal friction, family violence, alcoholism and salvation.
