Headwinded – Michael Perry and the Long Beds

Ten-song album of original songs written by Mike and recorded with his band the Long Beds.  Not sure how to describe the music other than some have called it roughneck folk, and it honors the spirit of folks like John Prine, Waylon Jennings, James McMurtry, and so on.  One lady in New Auburn said it was “like Gordon Lightfoot, only zippier.”  We’ll accept that.
