Billy Bragg & Wilco – California Stars (1998)

YouTubeAmazoniTunes – Discogs

Mermaid Avenue was an homage to Woody Guthrie. In 1998, Billy Bragg and Wilco created music to match hitherto unheard lyrics released by his daughter, Nora Guthrie. ‘California Stars’ was more Jeff Tweedy and Jay Bennett than Billy Bragg. I think that me be why I like it so very much. 1-2-3 “I’d like to rest my heavy head tonight / on a bed of California stars…”
