From 2008 Rodney Crowell’s Sex and Gasoline For Vintage Cafe


Our Vintage Cafe with Rodney Crowell is from around the time of his Sex and Gasoline album in 2008. That album is a bit of a change for Rodney who most often produces himself. It was produced by Joe Henry in his Pasadena studio. Rodney is currently back out on tour with Emmylou Harris, playing music from throughout their long intersecting careers. This session features performances from the stage of World Cafe Live. Sex and Gasoline is a thematic album focusing on women and female archetypes triggered, at least partially, by his daughter growing up. It’s always a great conversation with the articulate author and songwriter.
