Loudon Wainwright III - I'd Rather Lead A Band

A collaboration with Vince Giordano and his band The Nighthawks, and producer and music supervisor Randall Poster, Loudon Wainwright III’s new album, I’d Rather Lead A Band, is a loose, fresh, and “anti-nostalgic” take on a hand-picked selection of 14 classic songs from the 1920s and ‘30s featuring Wainwright as singer and band leader. The expansive record collection of Loudon’s father, the LIFE Magazine columnist Loudon Wainwright, helped to inform some selections, as did Loudon’s own musical beginnings as a jug-band singer. Wainwright, Giordano and The Nighthawks recorded the album in just three days at Electric Lady Studios.
