Various Artists – From A Man Of Mysteries: A Steve Wynn Tribute

All-star salute to one of America's finest talents

Trending Now

Still a criminally underrated songwriter, it’s gladdening to see such a turn-out to mark Steve Wynn’s first quarter-century in the business. Compiled by good friend Jaap Bos, this twin-CD set has plenty of decent moments and more than a few outstanding ones. Transmissionary Six offer up a softly beautiful “Lay Of The Land”, The Walkabouts’ Chris Eckman a spine-tickling “Follow Me” and, best of all, Willard Grant Conspiracy an incredible “Silence Is Your Only Friend”. Other guests include Sid Griffin, Chuck Prophet, Concrete Blonde, The Silos, Robert Lloyd and Minus 5.
