With the excellent new album ‘Psychedelic Country Soul‘ out this year – and don’t forget that it stormed to Number Onem on the UK Alternative/Americana album and also Number One best seller in Americana for Amazon in the UK and several other continental countries and with more gigs supporting it than they’ve done since, well, it’s been a long time – The Long Ryders are very much Back. And Better Than Ever. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame here they come.
