The lyrics on this recording are phenomenal, like when you have a really great novel that you can’t put down, you read a paragraph of prose and marvel at its perfection. It’s not the strange esoteric work of the past but a collection of accessible and interesting songwriting. You might read the liner notes about his home and state of mind, which is decidedly happy. Check out the musicians he employs. Bill Frisell and Loudon Wainwright III are two of them. Teresa Jeanne
