VERY WELL TRAVELED MAN, A - THE BEST OF THE MONUMENT YEARS 1967-1970
Stellar songs, heartfelt performances, the finest Nashville players and the greatest set of tonsils to ever wrap themselves around activist country-pop! Here are the almost forgotten masterpieces of Henson Cargill, sourced directly from the Monument Records vault and presented for the first time on CD, Hear Henson's smooth baritone lambast apathy ("None of My Business"), chide neglectful parenting ("Skip a Rope"), ponder the complexities of love ("Four Shades of Love"), dismiss the space race ("Going Backwards") and name-check Adolph Eichmann and Cecil B, DeMille in one song ("What's my Name?"), If "Wildflower" doesn't move you or "Reprints" make you stop and consider then you are surely made of stone, Zen country music anyone?
