The second volume in Billy Bragg & Wilco
's Mermaid Avenue series – dedicated to bringing to life unfinished Woody Guthrie tunes – thanks to Woody's daughter Nora inviting them to work with Guthrie's lyrics, penned throughout his life, but never finished as recorded songs. Bragg's take is straight-forward, strong-voiced folk, and Wilco
takes creative twists and turns with their versions, making for a compellingly diverse bunch of songs. Includes "Airline To Heaven", "Feed Of Man", "Hot Rod Hotel", "I Was Born", "Remember The Mountain Bed", "Meanest Man", "Somebody Some Morning Sometime", "Joe DiMaggio Done It Again", "Blood Of The Lamb" and more.
