Aaah, that wonderful voice of Larry Jon Wilson. What the hell is wrong with the world? These Larry Jon Wilson albums from the 70's are like the crown jewels of Outlaw Country music, they should be available to all. But they're not. So, I'll gladly inform y'all on this lost gem. "Loose Change" is album number three by Larry Jon, and like "New Beginnings" and "Let Me Sing My Song To You" it's more of the same. Greatness that is. Sometimes the arrangements are a little lush, but there's always enough raw beauty and substance to keep the music enthralling. The rip is less perfect than the previous two, so if anyone out there has a clean copy, please holler. Also, I'm still looking for "Sojourner".
In 2008 Larry Jon made his first new album since "Sojourner" from 1979. Called "Larry Jon Wilson", the album doesn't resemble his 70's albums very much. Still very good, but since the instrumentation is stripped down to the bare essentials, it's less interesting to me. I love the big arrangements of these albums much better. Well, that's just my humble opinion, you be the judge yourself. It's still available so check it out. He's still got that amazing voice. For now, all I need is some Loose Change..
