Editors’ Notes

With a voice that wobbles with ache and worry, Amy Rigby addresses the issues of midlife as a woman who has never thrown away her rock ‘n’ roll shoes. Unlike so many rockers, she’s incapable of sneering. Unlike most folkies, she doesn’t try to hide her juvenile delinquent past. Little Fugitive was recorded in a quick two-day jaunt and it pulses with urgency, where her previous studio album, Til the Wheels Fall Off, pushed forth with a little polish. She’s Loudon Wainwright III for the CBGBs set as she extols her misfit rocker status with “Dancing With Joey Ramone,” and shows the heart under her leather jacket as she bonds with her ex-husband’s new wife on “The Trouble With Jeanie.” A sultry psychedelic twist kicks in for “So You Know Now,” where she tells her perfect boyfriend how she used to be too promiscuous. Haunting ballads, sincere rockers and even a jaunty little showpiece in “Needy Men” make this yet another well-balanced album from one of rock music’s most charmingly neurotic singer-songwriters.
