Former (and sometimes still) Pixie Frank Black has been a busy man. Less than a year after releasing the laid-back, blues-infused LP Honeycomb, he's back with another, bigger effort (out today). Once again, he makes use of top-drawer Memphis musicians and sings a lot like Van Morrison on a number of the tracks. And there are a LOT of tracks - like Teenager of the Year, Fastman Raiderman is a sprawling double disc. This one (more so than THAT one) would go down well with a bottle or three of wine.
