I love this dude, anyone else?

If you haven't heard him: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4v8VJ0LRgA - Levi Stubbs' Tears

He's been referred to as the 'one man clash' - nice.

I've only heard a few of his albums but so far I like 'Back to Basics' the best.

I've also heard and recommend 'Talking with the taxman about poetry' & 'Don't try this at home'.

Yeah now I want to get that album after hearing that and California Stars. I'm not a big Wilco fan but they have some good songs.

Love Billy

You could pretty much start anywhere and not be disappointed. My particular favourites are "Talking to the taxman ..." and "Workers Playtime", but as I say they're all good.

He reissuing his box sets soon, which bring all his material together (except for his various Peel sessions, surely they are due for a seperate release?)

Well this is an old topic. But I love Billy Bragg and was going to make a thread and saw there already was one, so didn't want to make a whole new topic on it.

Anyway, Bragg is amazing. And I really love the he did with Wilco.
My favorite Billy Bragg song is Sexuality.
I just got into his music about a month ago, so I only have one album though, which is Must I Paint You A Picture?: The Essential Billy Bragg.

I know I have made my views on The S*n newspaper quite clear on this forum before but this is a great new free download from Billy Bragg that you may want to check out. In addition to the lies told back in 1989 by The S*n it looks as if Rupert Murdoch (owner of the s*n and News International) is under real pressure for yet more lies and this song has been released to coincide to add further pressure. http://www.billybragg.co.uk/sun.php
