Tom Russell has a unique career: he records his country-rock ì albums in Norway, he's played country music in a Puerto Rican ì carnival tent, and launched a comeback when he picked up Grateful ì Dead lyricist Robert Hunter while driving a cab in New York one ì night. The songs on his second Philo release are typically ì diverse, ranging from Bill Haley's demise ('Haley's Comet'), to ì 'Jack Johnson,' a mythic retelling of the story of the early ì black heavyweight champion, to the title track, a particularly ì disturbing metaphor for a relationship.
