John Houx Download mp3 | Stream mp3
The freewheelin' John Houx phones it in from the Harlem Renaissance House in Manhattan, NY, for a truly historic session. Like a man wandering through time as he's wandered from West Coast to East, John exists simultaneously in the NYC antifolk scene of the Sidewalk Cafe and the 60s Greenwich Village folk scene of Bleecker Street. If Langhorne Slim has a fire in his belly, then John eats at the same lunch counter. And more to the point, if Woody Guthrie had a cel phone, he would have had John on speed dial. This is that dreaded four-letter word, folk, that's still alive and revelatory. Awesome!

Part one of a double-header with Dream Bitches.
