    Genre: Folk
    Loudon Wainwright III has enjoyed a long fruitiful career as a songwriter performer and actor. He?s issued over 20 albums since his debut In 1970 (not including live or compilation records) and won a Grammy for High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project. As an actor he appeared on three episodes in the third season of M*A*S*H played a sminal role on the sitcom Undeclared and appeared in no less than seven feature films. The music and the man are the twin subject of 40 Odd Years a generous beautifullty chronicled four-CD box set by Shout Factory.

    Wainwright?s fans with be delighted by the 92 tracks included on the CDs divided into chronlogical categories ? 1969-1983; 1984-1995; 1996-2010 ? with a fourth disc of rare and unreleased material included that features live tracks demos a beautiful duet with late ex-wife Kate McGarrigle on ?Weave Room Blues? a collaboration with Ireland?s Boys of the Lough on ?The Hardy Boys at the Y? and ?At the End of a Lonely Day? with Suzzy Roche. There?s also a new track cut for the box entitled ?Dead Man.? The compilation discs include virtually everything a Wainwright aficionado could wish for; it reflects the dizzying diversity of his songwriting in folk blues and pop traditions. Wainwright has notched a particular place in music history as an irreverent (to say the least) often politically incorrect satirist and agent provocateur who refuses to take himself too seriously; he?s a gifted topical songwriter who embodies American music?s?? rich roots traditions and has had a fanatical cult following during each of the last five decades; the last being one of his most active. This is the grail for fans but it also belongs in every American community library and as part of any ?required listening? cirriculum.
