Liner Notes: Loudon Wainwright III on Parents & Children, Exes & Excess, Death & Decay, & a Few of My Other Favourite ThingsOmnibus
By Loudon Wainwright III
In the late 1960s, Loudon Wainwright III established himself as a determinedly independent talent. Then in 1972, at the age of 25, he wrote a song about a dead skunk and leapt from critic's darling to popular success.
Since then he's recorded twenty-seven albums, won a Grammy Award and sold-out the London Palladium...
As plain-speaking on the page as in his songs, Wainwright lays everything bare in this hilarious and heartfelt memoir of music and family. His lyrics adorn and inform the text, along with extracts from the brilliant work of his father, esteemed Life magazine columnist Loudon Wainwright, Jr.
