Format: Paperback
Tom Russell is, next to Ian Tyson, one of the last great American storytellers. There are only few artists, who are able to write and perform songs with such density and texture. Russell has written countless songs, which have - at least concerning a general public and today's mainstream radion - gone unnoticed; or at least did not receive the appreciation as they would deserve.

With "120 songs" Tom Russell finally offers a great retrospective of his work. "120 songs" is a true gem, because ...

* Russell uses a mixture of a chronological and thematic approach to organize the book (Early songs / The New York, Oslo Years / Gallo Del Cielo / New Yew to San Joaquin / Cowboy Songs / The Man from God know where / The Border Years / Blood and Candle Smoke).
* As the title suggests, there are 120 songs on 300 pages.
* The chapters are introduced with a woodcut by Tom Russell.
* Before each song, Russell tells the reader about the history of the song; highly interesting!
* If you like, get out your guitar! Chord symbols and capo positions are included.
* "120 songs" is a book of high value; it is interesting and a lot of fun to have a closer look at Russell's great songs.

Hopefully this won't be Tom Russell's last book (next to "Paint and Blood" and "Then I Wrote").

Tom is a really good songwriter. He provides snippets of stories about each lyric included, as well as chord changes for the tunes, which are useful only if you have the tune available to listen to in order to get the melody and timing.

A great book of many of the best "Americana" songs ever. And some damn fine art as well. You can't go wrong here if you're a Tom Russell fan. And if you're not a fan, come join us.

Anyone not familiar with Tom Russell, is missing one of the finest singer, songwriters alive today. His body of work is impressive and will be relevant forever. Simply the best.
