Album Review

Giant Sand's first two albums, Valley of Rain and Ballad of a Thin Line, were reissued on a single compact disc from Diablo. Even at the beginning of their career, Giant Sand had a distinctive take on dusty country-rock in the vein of Neil Young, and while both records have some clunkers, Howe Gelb's songwriting is often quite impressive.
