iTunes Editors’ Notes

Streets of Our Time plays like a guided walk through Danny George Wilson’s life and record collection. The former frontman of the U.K. country-rock quartet Grand Drive opens with “Henry the Van”; it’s a rootsy funeral song for his band’s tour vehicle, which broke down for the last time in Aberdeen, Scotland. Over skronky banjos, wobbly slide guitars, lilting strings, and harmonies sung with the warm intimacy of a front-porch jam, Wilson identifies with his van as he questions the end of the road while crooning, “I guess we’re both getting old.” With ample help from California canyon-twang luminary Neal Casal and Goldrush’s Joe Bennett, the title track recalls Harvest-era Neil Young as Wilson inflects like Running Down the Road-era Arlo Guthrie. “Follow the River” gets into some E Street Band–style Boss worship, replete with raspy, throaty howls and saxophones.
