Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

MARK OLSON

The Salvation Blues

2007-05-28

Mark Olson, founding member of the Jayhawks and ex-husband of Victoria Williams, has not had a good couple of years apparently. While married to Williams he started seeing someone else, then when he came back to Victoria, she wouldn’t have him. Heartbroken, he did all kinds of things to recover, such as touring Europe, singing and writing. This is a breakup record, touted as “a two-year journey through the heart of loss, redemption, in words and music.” Illustrated with photographs. Oh, and now that time has passed and he’s suffered enough, the two are officially back to “good friends” status. –Pete
