I Stand Alone
Bob Dylan called him his "long lost father." He's a living link to Woody Guthrie, Brownie McGhee and the beat poets. Mick Jagger, Van Morrison, Paul McCartney, Kris Kristoffersen, Bruce Springstreen, and Beck all cite him as an inspiration. Now more than ever, Elliott stands alone, a crucial remdinder of a proud and dying American tradition - a self-made wayfarer whose 50-plus years of experience resonate in every note he sings. This is the most intimate recording of his career, cradled by a family of guest performances by: Lucinda William, David Hidalgo, Flea, Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney) and Nels Cline (Wilco). Elliott offers an introspective look back at his career, through meditative takes on favorites and untried material.
