Overview

Letter To Laredo is an album by singer-songwriter Joe Ely. As a teenager, Joe listening to the Mexican farm workers strum guitars and sing their lilting corridos. Those formative experiences are reflected in Letter To Laredo, which draws a line of Spanish-American influences—both thematic and musical—from the cowboy music of the West Texas ranch country, across the Rio Grande River to the mariachi music of northern Mexico, and across the Atlantic Ocean to the gypsy music of Spain. The album has an acoustic folk-rock feel. Longtime Ely fan Bruce Springsteen adds high, howling harmonies on two songs, "All Just To Get To You" and "I'm A Thousand Miles From Home".
