November Songs

So if my life were going to be saved by rock and roll this year, it wouldn't be by either of these records. But if it was one or the other, I'd put my money on the Smith. Lou's is the better record. But I'm surprised to be surprised by Patti's. And I find some solace in it, too.

In any case, I'm glad to have both of them figuring out ways around the oldies trap that left old Jerry Lee Lewis sighing, "Wish I was 18 again, and going where I've never been." No need to rush, Jerry. No need to rush. We will.
