Alabama Ass Whuppin’ is DBT’s third album. Originally released in 2000, the record has been out of print for years. Recorded from March 1999 through August of 2000 in clubs across the southeast including Tasty Word, The High Hat, The Star Bar, The Caledonia Lounge and the 40 Watt, Alabama Ass Whuppin’ documents a specific time for the band. The album has been re-mastered and includes updated artwork by Wes Freed.
“This was our third album and the connecting thread between our earlier work and the band that we went on to become later. It’s a documentation of a period in time that I wouldn’t go back to for all the money in the world, but I’m proud of the shows that we played and the songs that we wrote, “ says Patterson Hood.
“They’re Athens, GA, by way of Muscle Shoals guys, children of Skynyrd and Suicidal Tendencies’ “Institutionalized,” with sharp brains buried deep in the caterwaul.” - Spin 8 out of 10
“Alabama Ass-Whuppin’ is like a good truck-stop breakfast – it sticks with you a while.” Billboard, Dec. 2000
