Spurred on by Drew posting John Coltrane Stereo Blues and a recommendation from the Swede I am now the proud owner of Medicine Show by The Dream Syndicate an album originally released in 1984.
There are a few Steve Wynn's on the shelves but this is the first by the band. I suspect that it wont be the last.
It gives me an opportunity to compare and contrast the band's version of the slightly sinister Merrittville with an acoustic version by Steve Wynn recorded in Hilversum, Holland and one of his three tracks on Song Circle 2002 where he appears with the late Robert Fisher, Walter Salas-Humara and Deanna Varagona.
