Little Village “Little Village”
Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#114 in the Series) is the only album from “Little Village.”
One album, One tour from a ‘Cool Musicians Super Group.”
Who was ‘Little Village?’ I think many in this group know, but I’ll fill in the names.
This 1992 group included Nick Lowe, Jim Keltner, John Hiatt and Ry Cooder. How’s that for fire power!
The music was strong. ‘Take Another Look, Don’t Bug Me When I’m Working, Big Love, The Action, Solar Sex Panel’ and the single ‘Don’t Go Away Mad.’
They only lasted one album and one tour. They played the Arie Crown Theater here in Chicago. If you look around the internet you can find an audio of the show. It was a hell of a show since they played almost the full album and each member did a tune or two from their solo careers.
‘Little Village’ was produced by the band and peaked at #66 on the Billboard Top 200.
