TK # 79: Willie Nile - Streets of New York (2006)

Bustling with the electric energy one associates with “the city”, Streets of New York is a love letter to the New York we always hope to see. The ringing guitars and sentimental lyrics showcase Nile’s gift as a plain spoken everyman while capturing the joy and terror of “Asking Annie Out”. Bonus points for his Joe Strummer tribute, a rollicking cover of “Police on My Back”.
