LOUDON WAINWRIGHT III

Years In The Making

STORYSOUND RECORDS L



2cd bookset

Released: 14th Sep 2018

£12.99


chronicling 45 years of off-beaten tracks, these 2 discs distil it down to a tight selection of rare and unissued Loudoniana, clocking in at just over 2 hours.

It’s an audiobiography with orphaned album cuts, live recordings, radio appearances, home demos, and more. There’s audio snapshots of his early folk efforts with Kate McGarrigle, George Gerdes, and Steve Goodman, singing traditional songs and covering Woody Guthrie and, of all people, Bob Dylan. There’s his 70s and 80s forays into the rock ‘n’ roll world, including Leiber and Stoller’s “Smokey Joe’s Cafe” and his own “I Wanna Be on MTV.” The CDs are packaged in an elegant 60-page booklet.
