About Howe Gelb
You know sometimes you hear a song for the first time & it clicks so immediately that its then impossible to imagine that it hasnt always existed – Classico from the new Giant Sand album is a perfect example. Ive recorded this song three times in a year – the two versions that bookend Map & a third by Italian legend Nada for her new album, Tutto Lamore Che Mi Manca. Howes lyrics on Classico and throughout the new record are typically unique, ranging from laugh out loud to painfully poignant, hitting all points bizarre in between. If there were only one person allowed to contribute further to the over-stocked pool of recorded music on this planet it should be Howe Gelb.
