Chip Taylor gives his perspective on new CD

Wednesday, April 30, 2008 – Chip Taylor will give his perspective on the nation's past, present and future when "New Songs Of Freedom" drops June 10 on his Train Wreck Records.

"Former American Soldier" concerns Laotian soldiers of Vientiane who fought for the U.S. in the Vietnam War and were left behind. "New Song of Freedom" takes a wry look at such diverse issues as the situation in Tibet to the current state of the music business, while "Sunshine's A Waterfall" offers such words of wisdom on the human condition as "little people climb big mountains/little minds can't reach the water fountains" and "rebuild it, don't bomb it/drop your weapons in the name of Muhammad!"

Three more songs are from Taylor's currently out of print 2001 opus "Black & Blue America."

Songs on the disc are:
1. Dance with a Hole in Your Shoe
2. Intro to Former American Soldier (Church of the Train Wreck Podcast)

CD review - The Little Prayers Trilogy If Chip Taylor had done nothing more than simply pen two of the biggest songs of his generation - "Wild Thing" and "Angel of the Morning" - his place in musical history would be well assured.
