Hey world -- what took you so long?
Here are two cuts from the CD, which drops, as the kids say, on Nov. 29 on Fat Possum Records.
And here's the complete track listing.
1. Taj Mahal - Your Mind Is On Vacation
2. Robbie Fulks - My Brain
3. Jackson Browne - If You Live
4. The Tippo Allstars featuring Fiona Apple - Your Molecular Structure
5. Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite - Nightclub
6. Chrissie Hynde - Stop This World
7. Iggy Pop - If You're Going to the City
8. Bonnie Raitt - Everybody's Crying Mercy
9. Loudon Wainwright III - Ever Since the World Ended
10. Richard Thompson - Parchman Farm
11. Peter Case - I Don't Worry About A Thing
12. Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin - Wild Man On the Loose
13. Anything Mose! - The Way of the World
14. Frank Black - Numbers On Paper
15. Amy Allison with Elvis Costello - Monsters of the Id
I was lucky enough to see Mose, who passed away in 2016 at the ripe old age of 89, at some hole in the wall jazz club in Greenwich Village sometime in the early 80s; the word that most comes to mind to describe the man and the music he made that night is "droll."
In any event, I am planning to enjoy the hell out of this CD when it arrives.
