129. "Levi Stubbs' Tears" by Billy Bragg

Considering how often I've cited Billy Bragg as an inspiration for my entire approach to solo performance, here on 39-40 and in any live setting, it's a damn shame that I didn't have time to do any kind of real justice to this song, which is... well, it's great, really just one of the great songs of forever times. And something that should be heard by anyone who thinks Billy's all politics. It's easy for me to love his political stuff, since it's right on and also incredibly doesn't suck in the least, but there's too much heart and soul to him for that pigeonhole to fit, or something like that.
