A Cure for Loneliness
Peter Wolf is a bit of a changeling, or, better put, perhaps, a wolf in sheep's clothing. Where once he specialized in blues and bluster at the helm of the J Geils Band, his solo career's found him altering course, ploughing the fertile fields of Americana as a journeyman and troubadour, singing songs not about bitchy women and betrayed intents, but rather about hard luck happenstance in general, not the least of which is lost love.

Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore had known each other for decades, but it wasn't until last year that they toured together in a guitar pull setting. What started as a small Texas tour mushroomed into points east and west and eventually the release earlier this month of their blues-based disc, "Downey to Lubbock."
