Cross the Razor: Terry Allen's Border Burn

By Paradise of Bachelors

In 2006 Terry Allen sent us a mixtape of some fave songs of the US-Mexico frontera. Here it is, w/some of our own additions, as relevant as ever. As Terry says, it's ALL border: "If they're gonna build a wall, they should build it high enough to keep the birds out too..." ORDER Pedal Steal set.
