I had never heard of Greg Brown before this album, which I bought because of its stellar group of contributors, the majority of whom have Ectophile's Guide entries. He is, apparently, a singer with 28 albums released between 1974 and 2007. Since I'm not familiar with his music, I can only comment on these songs as individual recordings and not as covers.
Thanks to JoAnn Whetsell for work on this entry.
