another solid album

beautiful and hard hitting. The irony wasn't lost on me... to hear The Ballad of the Minimum Wage on the same day Newt announced for President with a ringing endorsement of corporate greed.

Case in point ,

Classic Case with a bundle of blues

Peter Case has been wandering through the dusty roads of rocking roots and blues music since his eponymous first solo album in 1986. The Case Files will satisfy fans of Case's early work and his later exploration of multiple blues styles. "Give Me One More Mile" cranks up the energy with driving guitar rhythms , harmonica punctuation, and Case's searing lyrical punch. He revists "Steels Strings" from his first album in a stripped down style and "Anything" from "Camp Burlesque"...great melodies,..wry lyrics and a chunk of irony is all there to enjoy. There is a Stevie Ray Vaughn worthy version of Milkcow Blues, a boggie woogie blues (Black Crow Blues), and a classic down home blues(Good times, Bad times)....So, if you are in the mood for a box of blues or some acerbic political commentary, The Case Files will not disappoint. If you are a Case neophyte check out the Man with the Blue Post Modernist Fragmente Neo-Traditionalist Guitar...The title alone is worth the price of admission...JBT
