On his seventh solo set, at 64 years old, the onetime Woovah Groovah aims for mature good taste -- folky country, blue-eyed soul; drowsy duets with adult alternative icons Shelby Lynne, Neko Case, Merle Haggard; a piano eulogy for Willy DeVille. But it's the crasser cuts, spoken not sung, that jump out -- a funky Allen Toussaint rap; a dense, gravelly Diddley stomp about being ripped off; and the jive-talking "Overnight Lows," which starts out as the album's prettiest groove and winds up with our proud Pisces sitting in his underwear with a baloney sandwich, luring you toward his waterbed.
