Overview

Billed as a "Homeless-specific song-cycle," The Silverwolf Homeless Project compiles 16 cuts from artists as diverse as Cheryl Wheeler, John Gorka, Tom Paxton, and Ani DiFranco, some recorded for this project, others drawn from previously released sources. The common tone is one of heartfelt sadness (even in Greg Brown's "Just a Bum," which has a faux-jolly tone to it), which fits well with the assorted factoids and pictures of homeless people included in the booklet. Sadly, while Silverwolf is supporting a worthy cause here, the magnitude of the problem is overwhelming, and depressing. Which is no reason to ignore or bypass this set, however.
