Janky returns full of love in honor of LPL's birthday. This mix covers tracks from a selected discography spanning 1986-2009. There are mostly originals here, full of humor, wit and personality in true Texas troubadour fashion. Unlike his predecessors and contemporaries, Lyle was able to take the tradition further and include even more influences, weaving a unique sound grown out of country & western, blues, jazz standards, and roots music from America--and outside of America--into clever and affecting pieces of storytelling art. The few covers are the result of a thoughtful & truly appreciative artist--included are 2 songs of fellow Texan Townes Van Zandt.
