ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Peter Case is one of America's most gifted singer-songwriters. For over 30 years-from street singer to soul-punk bandleader to solo acoustic performer--Case has used his songs to crash barriers in popular music. As a member of the Nerves, Case worked as the opening act on the
1977 Ramones tour. By 1984, he'd disbanded his pioneering maximum R&B band, the Plimsouls, and became one of the first musicians of his generation to put down the electric guitar in favor of an acoustic, forging a sound he dubbed tribal folk.

Debuting with Peter Case in 1986 and winning critical favor and a GRAMMY nomination for his efforts, Case's maverick move inspired a whole new generation of musicians to pursue alternative-Americana routes of sound. Six more albums followed including the watershed new acoustic singer-songwriter work The Man With the Blue Postmodern Neo-Traditionalist Guitar, the stunning and varied Full Service No Waiting and the back-to-basics self-released Thank You St. Jude, among them. In 2001, he was nominated for a GRAMMY once again, this time for his work as producer of Avalon Blues: A Tribute to the Music of Mississippi John Hurt (featuring Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle and Beck).

A tribute to Case's songs with the Plimsouls was produced in the 1990s ("This Ain't the Plimsouls"), but there has yet to be a tribute to the solo work of Peter Case from his 1986 solo debut through his current release, "Beeline," (Vanguard 2002). Case's solo recordings have found an appreciative audience, especially within the music industry. He's recorded with T-Bone Burnett, Roger McGuinn, Ry Cooder, David Lindley, David Hidalgo, and Dave Alvin, among many others. He's co-written with Tom Russell, John Prine, Bob Neuwirth, and Tonio K, to name a few. His own songs have been covered by Robert Earl Keen, Flamin' Groovies, Marshall
Crenshaw, Four Men and a Dog and the Goo Goo Dolls.

In the 17 years since The NY Times rated Case's debut the top release of 1986, he’s released eight more solo albums, all filled with emotionally powerful songs such as "Travelin' Light," "Poor Old Tom," "Entella Hotel," "Beyond the Blues," "Put Down the Gun," "Crooked Mile," "Blue Distance" and "Something's Coming."

It should come as no surprise that Case teaches songwritng workshops in California, similar to the type that have been offered by Ray Davies in England. And just as Davies has been under-rated as a songwriter, so too has Case. This tribute aims to bring out that close connection Case has
had to a wide range of noted singer-songwriters. "Beyond the Blues, A Tribute to Peter Case," is an attempt to broaden Case's audience by showing the influence that Case's songwriting has had on other noteworthy musicians.

great stuff, absolutely great.....
If you like great song-writing and performances to match,
this collection of 40-some Peter Case songs by 40-some different artists is really pretty frickin' hard to beat...

Wonderful
Peter Case was not a name I was familiar with until recently. It was the Sam Baker song on this album that made me investigate, and how glad I am that I did. This collection is superb both for the songs and the interpretations by some of the finest singers you could get together. What a treat!
