A crafty, sarcastic nostalgist, Dan Hicks is to music what R. Crumb is to comics. Forged in the same Haight-Ashbury acid crucible, Hicks has written some of the more hummably retro tunes of the past half-century, including "I Scare Myself" and "Where's the Money." His recent work is in a similar vein, and his new holiday collection, Crazy for Christmas, is probably suitable for most other major holidays as well. With blues singer John Hammond.
