MP3: Alejandro Escovedo – “Street Song” from Street Songs Of Love, due June 29 via Fantasy/Concord.
Produced by Tony Visconti (T. Rex, Bowie, Morrissey). Ian Hunter even makes an appearance on the album, but not on this song. “On the arm of Tonio / Lookin’ for love inside the rodeo.” Good stuff.

Tony Visconti is in Rome producing the new Morrissey album which he claims is not only “a departure in his writing (my opinion) but he has extended his vocal range and has written extended melodies,” and features “film composer Ennio Morricone and an Italian children’s choir.”
