    A lovely collection where 80's punk folk protestor Billy Bragg links up with Wilco to bring some lost Woody Guthrie songs to life. It's a project that came with great responsibility but Bragg and Co were more than up to the task. Really beautiful stuff on show here and highly recommend to anyone who is into folk or good music in general.

    Even for those who already have both of the previous volumes, Mermaid Avenue: The Complete Sessions is a fascinating look at one of America's greatest writers.
