Another Taranna find…
I don’t always dig on Costello, it has to be the right day for me to want to hear him. But this album has a sweet sound to it, country sensibilities even when it’s not country, bluesy, rockin’ and clear and overall pretty damn listenable – I didn’t skip a single song! In fact, it’s some of the best Costello I’ve heard in a long while.
Add Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams as guest vocals, and it just gets better. The album has a cool story behind it, and Tom Waits loves it. So it has that going for it, too.
Hit It Or Quit It? Hit.
