Recorded in the late 90’s, this version of Kevlar Heart was lost during Stevie’s travels. It features appearances by some of Americana’s founding fathers: Jeff Johnson of Jason and the Scorchers and Ken Coomer from Uncle Tupelo and Wilco fame. The trio produced this cut in a series of pre-production sessions in Nashville, TN.
For these particular sessions Stevie took a backseat on the guitar work as he wanted a new sound. Charlie Starr from Blackberry Smoke put the icing on the cake with some tasty guitar tracks along with backing vocals by NYC songstress Liz Tormez. This is a much darker, moodier and folkier version than the remake released on 730 a.m in 2004. It's by far the best take on a man with an unbreakable heart refusing to bow to defeat in love.
