Published October 09, 2003.Steve EarleJust an American Boy(E Squared)In the wake of Steve Earle’s dark vision of George W. Bush’s America on Jerusalem comes the live set Just an American Boy. The show is riddled with his “unpatriotic” and unapologetic views of politics and American music. It contains favourites such as “Copperhead Road,” “Guitar Town” and Jerusalem’s “John Walker’s Blues,” the controversial ode to “American Taliban” bomber John Walker Lindh. Love or hate him, there’s no denying Earle’s genius and this unedited record testifies to that fact. —Trevor MacLaren
