Vinyl, Original recording remastered, March 24, 2009
Zevon's 1977 smash on CD or vinyl! Lawyers, Guns and Money; Werewolves of London, and more!
With this 1978 LP, Warren Zevon stepped forward as something of the dark prince of California. Like fellow Southern California outcast Randy Newman, Zevon achieved some fame, albeit not what his talent would have earned him had he written songs more like his mellower pal Jackson Browne and a little less like Jack the Ripper in a convertible. Fascinated with bloodthirsty antiheroes, Zevon wrote with the flair of a desperately bright pulp writer and summoned images of mutilated mercenaries ("Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner"), pampered bad boys ("Lawyers, Guns and Money"), helpless sickos (the title track), and, of course, feral Chinese-food fiends ("Werewolves of London"). Excitable Boy's 1976 predecessor (Warren Zevon) may be a more consistent album, but this is the one that put Zevon in the public consciousness as someone to keep an eye on--for protection as well as promise. --Steven Stolder

|This edition's version of Tule's Blues vs. Preludes version||
Sure you've found the answer by now, but just noticed the question.
There are two versions, Preludes version is piano only and sounds like a demo. The "Wanted Dead or Alive" is a band and fully flushed out. That and "She Quit Me" to have long been the great songs off that...
