[TEXAS TROUBADOR] If Bruce Springsteen had been born in West Texas instead of East New Jersey, he might have been Joe Ely, the only singer I’ve ever seen who could rival the Boss’ joyous live shows. The 67-year-old, who once opened for and upstaged the Clash, the Stones and Tom Petty, hasn’t recorded a new solo album since 2011, but he’s hardly slowed down, having published a road journal, written a novel, released a live album, cut a couple CDs and toured with his longtime buddies the Flatlanders. His current acoustic duo with guitarist Jeff Plankenhorn will lower the voltage a bit, but as the title of a recent cut, “Not Much Has Changed,” suggests, the fierce blend of country, rock, Tex-Mex and folk that fueled classics like “Musta Notta Gotta Lotta,” “Honky-Tonk Masquerade” and “Me and Billy the Kid” also pervades his recent songs about grown-up subjects like facing mortality.
