 Tucson, Arizona, Giant Sand and Howe Gelb are inextricably linked. Singer-songwriter Howe Gelb, as a musical genius and bandleader, has already created a lot of dust from the desert city. His Americana is truly limitless. But those who like to think in boxes can hear a mix of rootsrock, faux jazz, southern folk and mariachi. With his Giant Sand Gelb managed to get hold of Joey Burns and John Convertino in the mid 80s and 90s, a decade before the two founded Calexico.

Now Gelb turns time back to 1986, the year of Giant Sand's second album, Ballad Of A Thin Line Man. Howe Gelb, Thøger Lund and Tommy Larkins have dusted off this vinyl record and rethought it. Buried gems have been polished and combative tirades have been revived. In addition to pimping, the songs were given a different order, a number were omitted and new ones were added. The result of the re-recording is called Recounting The Ballad Of The Thin Line Men.

Nu draait Gelb de tijd terug naar 1986, het jaar van het tweede album van Giant Sand, Ballad Of A Thin Line Man. Howe Gelb, Thøger Lund en Tommy Larkins hebben deze vinylplaat afgestoft en opnieuw uitgedacht. Begraven pareltjes zijn opgepoetst en vechtlustige tirades nieuw leven ingeblazen. Naast het oppimpen kregen de nummers een andere volgorde, werd een aantal weggelaten en zijn er nieuwe toegevoegd. Het resultaat van de re-recording heet dan ook Recounting The Ballad Of The Thin Line Men.

Na het succes van Howe Gelb’s solo-album Gathered, dat met vier- en vijfsterrenrecensies bejubeld werd, is Gelb weer op tour met zijn grote project Giant Sand. Studiosessies met zijn vrienden, en tevens uitzonderlijke muzikanten, Tommy Larkins (de originele drummer van Giant Sand) en Thøger Lund zijn in volle gang om de heropname van Ballad Of A Thin Line Man dit najaar te presenteren. De nummers blijven hetzelfde, maar op de een of andere manier totaal anders.
