A heavy postcard tribute to Chris Whitley, who passed away one year ago today, much too young and much too soon...I never did idolize any singer or artist, but i miss this guy so much...He deserved a hundred more years to share all the beauty and power his music had...And he deserved much more success too. But it's never too late...

As i believe his songs can't be "covered", please take this as a humble hommage. A noisy one. I just tried to howl as loud as i can, so maybe he'll hear me. I hope.

My deepest thanks to the Team Landreth who helped me on this one : Wally for being a friendly tyrant and for putting JR to work (lol). Joey, for his fantastic Telecaster fireflies and taking the lead guitar all the way through...
Me just trying to howl at the moon, playing acoustic and electric guitars, bass and a 2-stringed banjoline that sounds like a mix between a piano and a casserole.

Dylan, I share your feeling for Chris. I was profoundly affected from the first listen and I never tire of his music. I passed my love of his music on to my sons, so I know that around here he won't be forgotten. Thanks for such a passionate tribute.

I don't really deserve a credit here, as all I did was hit record for Joe.

If we listen to this track carefully, we can hear, behind the wall of guitars, your true feelings for this artist. Touching and wild !

It sounds like Iggy Pop backed by Neil Young's Crazy Horse. Joey is a great guitarist. Fantastic, again !

Woah!!! (what GGirl & j0j0 & Ghost said). Has it been a year already? I'd wait 10 years for a track like this this. I dare say that Chris was sitting on your shoulder during this one, Dylan. Amazing work from you all.

Dyl, another masterful song...I don't know of Chris, but now I need to check him out. I am loving every part of this song, as I'm a min or so in...ok, harmonica just hit...great instrumentals all around by the way. Your howling Dyl is better than so many could ever hope to be...I hope your voice will be heard by a much larger slice of the world someday my friend...I'm gonna make it a personal mission. This is a wonderful collab and tribute.

This is superb Dylan. I love the raw power of the track, i think the guitar just whips the track into a frenzy and your vox are perfect for the track.

I don't know Whiteleys music, I should check it out now, but this is great.
