Enjoy Every Sandwich: The Songs of Warren Zevon



        Shortly after Warren died of lung cancer, his son and a bunch of longtime friends/colaborrators got together to put out a tribute album. The title of the album comes from an interview that Zevon did on his last Late Night appearance. Something that you should probably youtube at some point.

        Included on the track are two live performances. Bruce Springsteen sings "My Ride's Here" and Bob Dylan sings "Mutineer" the first song is great, as Bruce knows how to sing something emotionally, even if you cant understand a word of it. The second not so much, because Bob Dylan sings the same way every single time, even if you cant understand a word of it. Adam Sandler ham's it up on "Werewolves of London". And David Lindley and Ry Cooder turn "Monkey Wash Donkey Rinse" into a bluegrass hoedown.

        The best tracks on the album are the two previously unreleased songs. Although Studebaker was eventually released on the album Preludes as an unfinished outtake, Jordan takes the song and makes it his own. Billy Bob Thornton follows this track with "The Wind" a song that Warren wasn't able to finish. The Wind may be the best Warren Zevon song ever, and he never got to sing it.

If you are fan of Warren Zevon, you will love this album.
