LARRY JON WILSON
NEW BEGINNINGS / LET ME SING TO YOU
Smoky, elegant storytelling that drifts through a southern gothic haze and over a funky backbeat, Such is the unique and criminally underappreciated songcraft of Larry Jon Wilson, Ahead and possibly outside of his time Wilson cut a handful of stellar yet neglected LPs for Monument Records in the mid-1970s, The first two are presented here in all their smouldering soul groove glory, From the windswept country-fried funk of Sheldon Churchyard to the heartfelt muse of Bertrand My Son, Wilson was praised and revered by his peers (Kristofferson, Van Zandt, Newbury et, al.) but passed over by the Nashville mainstream.
