Willie Nile - born and still living in Buffalo, this guy proves that effort and energy endure. His first two solo discs ware released in 1980 and 1981, and his singer-songwriter style immediately put him in the "next Dylan" category.
That didn't stop him - but legal nonsense did, and he didn't release another project until 1991. Abandoning large record companies, Nile started putting his own discs out with 1999's Beautiful Wreck of the World, which contained some of his greatest songs.
And now the circle is complete with Postively Bob - Willie Nile Sings Bob Dylan, set to be released at the end of June.
Willie deconstructs the Bard and reworks his songbook, Nile-style...enjoy!
