Springfield, Illinois songwriter revealing a melancholic, often haunting collection of songs that are elaborate and unusual. It's big music with a minimalist flourish, words that seem unrelated until you give it a listen. Some of the songs lure, some lilt and jeer, but all are stamped with his contagious melodies and preoccupation with styles of the 1920?s ? a peculiar package for his lyrical jabs and barbs. This session was supposed to be with a full band, but some asshole car thief ruined those plans. An awesome solo set was the silver lining.
