Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

ELVIS COSTELLO AND ALLEN TOUSSAINT (“Two-SAHN-t”)

The River in Reverse

2006-06-23

This cross-generational collaboration between two veteran performers is hopefully here to stay. Produced by Joe Henry, this is the best post-Katrina protest release to date. It’s fun, musically excellent, yet bittersweet. “The Imposters” are the featured backup band. Five (4,8,9,10,13) new collaborative songs and one new Costello (title track). The rest are interpretations of Toussaint originals. –Pete
