40 Odd Years into an exceptionally prolific and storied career, Loudon Wainwright III is being celebrated with an aptly named career-spanning 4- CD/1-DVD box set, including a 40-page book, with an essay by renowned journalist/author David Wild and an introduction by filmmaker and box set coproducer Judd Apatow.

40 Odd Years features songs from throughout Wainwright’s career, including works of brilliance such as “The Man Who Couldn’t Cry,” which Johnny Cash would record with producer Rick Rubin decades later, to “Dead Skunk,” a #16 pop hit, to highlights from his Grammy®-winning album High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project. The 3-hour-plus DVD includes an extremely rare documentary, numerous TV appearances (for the BBC, Saturday Night Live, Austin City Limits and others), and previously unreleased concert performances.From the Label
