Reverie

By David Wilcox (What Are Records?)

On his 17th album, Wilcox tries a bold experiment: he records in front of a live audience, but without applause punctuating each tune. The result captures the current of a concert performance and focuses it on songs such as the plaintive "Dynamite in the Distance," which tells of a demolition man working in winter and treading a tricky romance: "When you hear the sound from far enough away/ Even dynamite can purr."
