Mermaid Avenue is a 1998 album of previously unheard lyrics written by American folk singer Woody Guthrie, put to music written and performed by British singer Billy Bragg and the American band Wilco. The project was the first of several such projects organized by Guthrie's daughter, Nora Guthrie, original director of the Woody Guthrie Foundation and archives. Mermaid Avenue was released on the Elektra Records label on June 23, 1998

Both artists completed more songs than could fit on Mermaid Avenue, which is neatly split between Bragg and Wilco, with Bragg taking lead on eight of the 15 songs. The results are almost entirely a delight, mainly because all involved are faithful to Guthrie's rowdy spirit - it's a reverent project that knows how to have fun. There are many minor, irresistible gems scattered throughout the album, and most of them come from Bragg.

Billy Bragg and Wilco. Mermaid Avenue Tracklist. 1. Walt Whitman's Niece Lyrics. The Unwelcome Guest Lyrics. About Mermaid Avenue. A 1998 collaboration between folk singer Billy Bragg and alternative rock band Wilco, setting music to previously unheard lyrics written by Woody Guthrie. Mermaid Avenue Q&A.

Billy Bragg + Woody Guthrie Modern Classic and one of my personal favs. This album was a collaboration between the Woody Guthrie family, Billy Bragg and Wilco, which brings some new Woody Guthrie material into world in a manner that is well suited to it. Billy Bragg sings Woody's songs as, it seems to me, they were meant to be sung. As albums go, not only musically rewarding, but a necessary addition to any credible folk music collection.

When you first heard that Billy Bragg and Wilco were teaming up to set some Woody Guthrie lyrics to music, you knew it'd be an interesting project. But did anyone realistically think Mermaid Avenue would also wind up being one of 1998's finest albums? That's exactly what it is, a distinction it pulls off by simultaneously honoring Guthrie and blasting away any folksy expectations we might have of his music.
