My very first exposure to this very talented man’s work was a song y’all might consider a novelty tune.
I wish I could link you to it, but I haven’t been able to find it on YouTube.
It’s called The Mysterious Case of Frank Cash and The Morning Paper.
As I said, it was my first time knowing anything about him until O Brother Where Art Thou?, which of course, he produced musically.
Recently, though, in looking for music for my blog, I thought of him again and found this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzFZTBYE-kM, and Oh. My. God, that song just rang so many of my bells, I played it over and over.
So… are his talents so multi-faceted that one just needs to “follow” (for want of a better word) him across the genres?
Because, honestly, the last time I remember being this affected by a musician was when The Beatles were together.
