Overview

Elliott is one of folk music's most enduring legends, influencing everyone from Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger to the Rolling Stones and the Grateful Dead. Elliott takes on depression era blues songs that have a particular resonance in these turbulent times. With his world-scarred voice wrapped around these dark songs of dark days, Elliott has made his masterpiece, an album at once elegiac and defiant, that can stand beside great late-career recordings by Billie Holliday and Frank Sinatra. Produced by Joe Henry (Aimee Mann, Elvis Costello, Solomon Burke).
