Peter Spencer's third album is his most guitar-oriented, with tracks from the ragtime/folk of 'The Little Death Rag' to the swampy acoustic picking of 'The Battle is Over,' the smoking electric leads of 'Crime Against Love' and 'Too Good-Looking,' even his moody solo take on Thelonious Monk's jazz classic 'Round Midnight.' At one point he even yodels - a once-in-a-lifetime musical event. Peter Spencer was born in Erie, PA and grew up on late-night R&B radio and Bob Dylan records. He has toured North America and Europe as a solo blues singer; co-founded the Greenwich Village Songwriters Cooperative and Fast Folk magazine; written about music for Rolling Stone, Sing Out!, and the New Jersey Star-Ledger; and is author of the book 'World Beat: A Listener's Guide to Contemporary World Music on CD' (A Capella Press, 1992). He currently lives on an island in Puget Sound, dividing his time between a large roster of guitar and voice students and tours of the East and West Coasts. His previous albums are 'New Hope and Wise Virgins' and 'Nobody's Daddy,' both available through peterspencer.com.
