Anyone a fan?
American Gothic is a masterpiece.
It's a really individual, fascinating, heartbreaking album and something I enthuse about quite a bit (actually, the person who recommended it to me died last month, which adds its own poignancy) and I'm surprised that despite a lot of huge selling singer-songwriters - Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Phil Collins, Steve Earle, Elvis Costello -citing him as fans and an influence he's yet to pick up much in the way of a retrospective following.
Are really good. Highly recommended to anyone not familar with him.
i like American Gothic but not struck on the others really.
