Hagman Review: Eric Andersen's 'Great Song Series' (4) RE: Review: Eric Andersen's 'Great Song Series' 11 Apr 14


Well, Andersen's always been interested in odd rhythms so it wasn't a real surprise - albeit these CDs were released in 2004 and 2005. The "Afghanistan" refrain on "Yellow Boots" is apposite for the time. Didn't hear a lot of "scratching" sounds, though. And EA's update on "Hard Rain" sure beats the hell out of Bryan Ferry's....!

They're a fine tribute to his long friendship with Ochs, and long may we be listening to both these major artists.

(Eric shares one dubious honour with Loudon Wainwright III - they both deserve a Grammy for Most-Mispelled-Name-in-Reviews-and-On-Header-Cards-in-CD/LP-Racks-in-Music-Shops....)
