I fell in love with Jeff Daniels music after hearing him play Lifelong Tiger Fan Blues before a Detroit Tigers game. His new version The Lifelong Tiger Fan Blue Revisited is now one of my favorite songs! I love his music!
I first found this album by accident while doing in Search for the term "Yooper". I went to school for four years in Marquette, Michigan and every now and then I get the urge to remind myself about da good ol UP This is album is actually really good; the music is a folk/blues style which is equal parts serious and fun. Stand outs include "Orville Wright", "Forgive me Robert Johnson" and "Mile 416" with a special favorite being "The Ballad of the Buckless Yooper", a song based on the movie "Escanaba in Da Moonlight" a longtime favorite of mine and my family.
Takes me home
His first album (A benefit for the Purple Rose) was more intimate, but this album took Mr. Daniels from a great actor with some musical wit to a full fledged card carrying songwriter in my opinion. Although there some references to Michigan (Mr. Daniel's still-home state), notably in #7, #10 and #12, this music just takes me back to my Monroe County home town in an instant: it's like he bottled Michigumi in song & lyric. My U-10 daughters will listen to Buckless Yooper for hours on end (maybe it reminds them of their grandfather). #5 must have been inspired by driving in San Francisco.
