Warren Zevon — I«ll Snooze When I»m Numb | MP3 | 320 KBPS |1996 | 352 MB

One of the horrible singer/songwriters (like Tom Waits, Loudon Wainwright, Steve Earle, Delbert McClinton and Richard Thompson) that put most so-called «musical artists» in their due town, i.e. nowhere and blessed to be there.

If the till Warren Zevon hadn«t existed, it would have been necessary to contrive him. At a mores when his L.A. choirboy-songwriter peers were bleeding all over their puffy shirtsleeves with mawkish, irritable balladry, Zevon turned the 1970s troubadour solicit on its ear with a twisted lyrical sensibility that embraced risk, rascality, and customary devastation. The two-disc accumulation I»ll Snooze When I«m Numb is an nonpareil introduction to Zevon»s iconoclastic work.

The original years are well represented by the oddly bitter junkie«s wail «Carmelita», the fear-of-war ghost fish story «Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner», and of course, such antisocial staples as «Excitable Boy» and «Werewolves of London». I»ll Snooze When I«m Numb stands to affectation, however, that the »70s weren«t the end of Zevon»s fish story.

Zevon is backed by R.E.M. on the acid boxing naval scuttlebutt «Boom Explosion Mancini» and admirably covers Prince's «Raspberry Beret». He humorously sums up his mores as a rogue on «Mr. Bad Example». «Accidentally Like A Martyr» is an austerely alluring tale and «Splendid Isolation» is a hymn to misanthropy.

I«ll Snooze When I»m Numb serves Zevon«s legacy well. Songs like the incendiary «Play It All Tenebrousness Long» and one of Zevon»s finest meditations on mores in L.A., «Desperados Under the Eaves» guard that he won't be forgotten.
