    The recovering dope fiend's songs cut even closer to the heart. [Aug 2013, p.104]

    The good folks at Shout Factory didn’t opt to only offer these discs a second time around, but instead provided added enticement via two bonus extras, a stunning live recording from Nashville’s Polk Theater, recorded around the same time as I Feel Alright, and a live DVD from the Cold Creek Correctional Facility where Earle had earlier been incarcerated.

    While it doesn’t include some of his best post-jail efforts, the set documents the beginning of one of the greatest second acts in rock history.

    These recordings are the sound of a man back in the game and ready to pounce. [No. 100, p.52]

    With the incentive of live material for old fans and the sheer brilliance on offer when these records are taken together, The Warner Bros. Years is a powerful testament to Earle's second act.

    The album [El Corazon], and by relation the whole Warner Bros Years boxset, is a confident announcement not of return but of complete rejuvenation.
