Oh, he’s been around. He’s been performing, writing crime novels, running for Governor of Texas, touring with Bob Dylan, recording with Clapton and Ringo Starr, and generally continuing to be the stogie-waving, outrageous “Texas Jewboy” he set out to be all those years ago.

Now he’s back with a new album, and it is a good one, but don’t be expecting songs like “They Don’t Make Jews Like Jesus Anymore.” Think more along the lines of “Sold American,” with its sad story of a former country star who hits hard times. That’s the tone of this collection of original songs and covers – about the darker side of life.

Friedman is helped on the album by Willie Nelson, Nelson’s sister Bobbie, and Nelson band member Mickey Raphael. He and Nelson do a marvelous duet on Nelson’s own “Bloody Mary Morning” to start things off. The song features Kevin Smith on standup bass as well.     read more posted by Rhetta Akamatsu at http://www.kinkyfriedman.com
