Gripka's Barn Doors and Concrete Floors was an enduring pleasure of 2011, a ragged, rural, romantic take on the American heartland music beloved of the Rolling Stones when they were great. Neil Young too.
This is the live version, as it toured Europe last spring. It's crunchier than the studio version, as you'd expect, and consequently slightly less tender. But thoroughly soulful all the same. Buy the studio album first and then decide whether you need its rawkier brother.
