Billy Bragg & Wilco - The Mermaid Avenue's

I thought this would be a nice little upload. If your not already familiar, Billy Bragg & Wilco were sought out by Woody Guthrie's daughter to take lyrics her wrote near his death and sing and put music to them. Some songs are the genius political satire and dialogue Guthrie is known for. But my favorite songs deal mostly with nature, love, death, and just being human.



Mermaid Avenue. Notable songs, California Stars, One By One.



Mermaid Avenue, Vol. 2. Notable songs, Secrets Of The Sea, Remember The Mountain Bed, and Blood Of The Lamb.

Well, Billy Bragg is one of those artists that keep you with your mouth open! Those lyrics! I love his political view of reality.
