Both Downey, California and Lubbock, Texas have produced so many great musicians. 'Downey To Lubbock' is a Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore collaboration that was also produced by the pair. The album's lead track, "Downey To Lubbock" is the only Alvin/Gilmore penned song. And other than Alvin's "Billy The Kid and Geronimo" or the traditional "K.C. Moan" arranged by these two great musicians, the other nine songs are covers. Chris Gaffney's beautifully sung "The Gardens" by Dave is followed by Jimmie Dale's vocals on "Get Together", The Youngbloods' peace-and-love anthem of the 1960s.

The other gems include:

Silverlake (Steve Young)
Stealin', Stealin' (William Shade)
July, You're a Woman (John Stewart)
Buddy Brown's Blues (Lightnin' Hopkins)
The Gardens (Chris Gaffney)
Get Together (Chester Powers)
Lawdy Miss Clawdy (Lloyd Price)
Deportee - Plane Wreck At Los Gatos (Woody Guthrie/Martin Hoffman
Walk On (Brownie McGhee/Sonny Terry)

Some of the musicians helping out on this great album include Van Dyke Parks (accordion), Skip Edwards (organ), Don Heffington (drums), Lisa Pankratz (drums), David J. Carpenter (bass) and Brad Fordham (bass).
