Show Post: In House #1446
Singer-songwriter Richard Swift's first two albums, Walking Without Effort and The Novelist were reissued this week as one double-album by Secretly Canadian records. The Collection, Vol. 1 is an outstanding introduction to the up-til-now obscure musician, featuring seventeen tracks summoning the ghosts of George Harrison and Harry Nilsson while Burt Bacharach and a young Tom Waits mix scotch & sodas in the corner.
In House #1446.
