Billy Bragg & Joe Henry album review: Shine A Light
Barking bard and buddy let the train take the strain with Field Recordings From The Great American Railroad
The Americana credentials of Billy Bragg are on show for this lively history lesson. Earlier this year he and pal Joe Henry (producer of Bragg’s 2013 album Tooth & Nail), clutching guitars, boarded a Chicago-bound train in LA. Four days and 3,000 miles later they had an album, recorded en route.
