A lot different than I would have expected, but great, nonetheless. Looking forward to the album in February.

^ Welcome to my spot, Ash. I'm grateful for your comments.

You're off to a good start with your own blog.

He's still got that one foot in the future, one foot in the past approach that helped make him so strong in the first place. Updating a Robert
Johnson song with a twenty-first century musical backing -- that's sharp.

The revolution WILL be televised after all! Great to see the brother in full swing.

I truly love this cat.. but this cut is not a song... IT'S A REMIX!. Tell me I am wrong?
50 bucks says a white dude shot the video..Very art schoolish// though well produced/finished.
It's Your World is an album I listen/play part of weekly..

BTW I hope everyone ignores David Simon's tired themes of urban decadence in his new pilot 'Treme"

I hated his racist "Wire" construct now he returns to the same playbook..

Boring redneck motherfucker...

This is 21st Century Gil, brah. He hooked up with some British cats who put a whole new sound behind him.

Can't wait to consider the album as a whole.
