|The Little Willies have released For the Good Times, (track listing below) the rousing follow-up to their eponymous 2006 debut.
For the Good Times is another stellar collection of country covers from some of The Little Willies’ favorite songwriters, including Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Lefty Frizell, and Dolly Parton.
The group – Lee Alexander (bass), Jim Campilongo (guitar), Norah Jones (piano, vocals), Richard Julian (guitar, vocals) and Dan Rieser (drums) – first formed in 2003 as an excuse for the five friends to spend a night playing music together at The Living Room on New York’s Lower East Side, but the gig proved too fun for both the musicians and audience for it to remain a one-off.
