This album is excellent, and B Billy Bragg would be the last person to take all the credit for it. The lyrics are those of Woody Guthrie, who died in 1967. And the songs are performed by the band Wilco, with Bragg and Jeff Tweedy and Jay Bennett from the band Wilco (whose "Summerteeth" album I strongly recommend) on vocals, almost alternating song by song. There are also guest vocals from Natalie Merchant. So, it's not exactly a Billy Bragg solo album, then. It is quite different, in many ways, although on some songs the style is close to that of Bragg's solo album ("Way over yonder in the minor key" and "The unwelcome guest"), ...

makes an appearance on "You woke up my neighbourhood", which is almost a country song, with its fiddle. My very favourite song (and I think my favourite Bragg song ever) is "Cindy of a thousand lives", it's just perfect - Johnny Marr's guitar and Kirsty McColl's wonderfully haunting backing vocals play their part, but Bragg's vocals are equally persuasive. Although Bragg seems to be thought of as a political songwriter, a minority of the songs on his albums are in fact 'political'. Here, you've got the uptempo "North Sea Bubble" (closing line "War! What is it good for? It's good for ...
