New Peter Wolf album, song

I'm looking forward to the new Peter Wolf album "Midnight Souvenirs". The disc includes several great Boston musicians, as well as cameos from Shelby Lynne, Neko Case and Merle Haggard.

Peter performed “Tragedy” with special guest Shelby Lynne on the “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on April 5th. You can listen to the song below or on Peter's Facebook page. Shelby Lynne played Johnny D's at 7PM on Sat, May 8. Peter joined her on stage for there too.

  Tragedy by Oedipus 

I also found the "Making of" videos very compelling, see below. The second feature Shelby.

Both Peter and J Geils have been important in the Boston Music Scene for years and still play around the area. Several of the musicians shown on the record and in the video (Duke Levine, Kevin Barry) are also pillars of the music community here.

I ran into Peter at the recent Chuck Prophet show at a Lizard Lounge. I wanted to respect his privacy, but also wanted to say hello, so I asked him if he'd be joining Chuck. He said he was asked, but they didn't work anything out. I had the feeling he would have blown the doors off of just about any song with no rehearsal, but he never made it to the stage. He was there, like me, as a music fan and that was cool, too.
