Loudon Wainwright III - History

As Loudon says himself, the list of the best are 1) Dylan, 2)Neil, and in the third position is Loudon. I have seen the man in concert twice and he puts on a hell of a show. Loudon differs from Dylan very much so, as his songs aren't very cryptic they are just like stories. Most are about his childhood dealing with his sibilings, or as a dad singing to his son (who is of course Rufus Wainwright). These songs seem to be more meaningful for people with strange families, so if you have one try it out.This is my favorite album of his. Notable songs are The Picture, Talking New Bob Dylan, and A Father And A Son. Check it out here @
