Blogarrhea: The Long Strange Trip of Darryl Purpose Results in a Modern Masterpiece >>

Darryl Purpose, on 'Still The Birds' (Blue Rock) sounds like James Taylor. He co-writes with Paul Zollo like Paul Simon or Leonard Cohen on subjects as wide-ranging as Edgar Allan Poe ("Baltimore"), Dylan Thomas ("Prince Of The Apple Towns"), L.A. gangs ("Evergreen Avenue"), Vietnam war draft dodgers ("Hours In A Day"), Buddah ("When Buddha Smiled At The Elephant") and the Civil War ("Shiloh"). But it's his life story that's even more fascinating.
