Shotgun Jimmie plays songs about holding hands, running in packs, beers in pockets. He has an acoustic on his lap and a kick-drum at his feet. It is potato-chip-crisp guitar pop, and it is utterly outstanding. "They say that you are what you eat," he sings, "and I feel like I musta ate a king."Also, there's flute.

Ali vs Williams, 1966. So all those laptop-looking things are actually portable typewriters. Sweet.Posted by John Governale at February 24, 2011 1:16 PM
Yes! Yes! Yes!
This is exactly the way this record should be reviewed. I keep thinking to myself that I'm over-reacting with how much joy this album brings me....but nope, I think it's the right reaction. Jimmie is national treasure. This album should be loved and loved and loved. It that great, that's all there is to it.Posted by Tyson at February 24, 2011 3:36 PM
I didn't think it was possible for me to like "Poor In Love" more than I already did. Thanks for proving me wrong.Posted by TimK at February 24, 2011 8:40 PM
