I quickly procured a trio of the albums the group made during the 1980s -- Fear and Whiskey, Edge of the World, and Rock and Roll -- and I was sunk. Their sit-down acoustic set at IOTA last night was mostly devoted to Ancient and Modern, a new album I hadn't heard prior to the show. Didn't matter. Read all about it.
