Loudon Wainwright III :: Motel Blues (A Live One – 1979)

Throughout a career that spans over forty years and travels nearly every road on the musical map, Loudon Wainwright III has always maintained an ultimate honesty in his work. Whether it's the “New Bob Dylan” sincerity in his 1970 debut record, his aptly placed humor, or his deeply sentimental songs about family, death and loved ones, Loudon has the ability to poetically flip a switch between quick and slow, quiet and loud, happy and sad.
