Stuart Bailie.jpgBack in 1997 I wrote an enthusiastic review of the Whiskeytown album, 'Strangers Almanac'. It was doused in cool Americana, and seasoned with a little danger.

Soon after, I was on the phone to the singer of the act, Ryan Adams, who was still drunk after a huge party, and who rambled with panache. Not long after, Whiskeytown was over and Ryan was rambling on his own. Anyway, 'Stranger's Almanac' will be reissued on March 31 with a bonus disc and the chance to hear Adams tackling the songbooks of Gram Parsons, Johnny Cash and more. There are also acoustic versions of signature tunes such as 'Dancing With The Women At The Bar'. Perfect for the radio show.
