After Listening To It In The Car For About The Five Hundredth Time...

I am prepared to inform you that "Talking With The Taxman About Poetry" is a great fucking album.

No ... it's one helluva great fucking album.

Sing loudly to "Levi Stubbs' Tears" for me, okay?

Levi Stubbs's Tears is a serious candidate for Best Song Ever.

I fucking love that album.

Isn't he the Tae Bo guy?

I never picked up the Wilco+Billy Bragg album(s) I suppose I should?

One of my top five. "The Warmest Room" is one of my favorites. "There is Power in a Union." "Help Save the Youth of America." "Levi Stubbs' Tears."

I'm divesting myself of my vinyl soon. I'm keeping the vinyl of this album because it has great memories, plus the Mayakovsky poem the title is based on is printed on the liner. Brilliant poem-- seek it out sometime-- it explains Billy Bragg.

And yes, Grant, Mermaid Avenue was great. I didn't hear the second one, but my guess is that it was great too.

Beth- I always pump my fists during "There Is Power In A Union".

Vikki- It's beautiful.

Lulu- Word.

Frank- Yes.

Grant- They are both good.

Johnny- Help Save The Youth is another great one.

Spooney- One of my favorite lyrics! I love Worker's Playtime, too.
