Let Us Now Praise Peter Case
Peter Case was nominated for a Grammy Award for his solo album, Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John. I told you about this record when it came out. And this blog has sung the praises of the Plimsouls and each of the band members a lot. I love those guys and their music.
The Grammy nod is one certainly well deserved for a man as talented as Peter, who works so hard and so non-stop. The nomination is in the category of Best Traditional Folk album. Kind of a far turn from a punk/power pop/garage/soul/r&b thing that Peter was known for in the Nerves and Plimsouls. But remember, Peter's been doing the solo traditional folk/acoustic thing since about 1984 (23 years now), making him a solo artist for more of his lifetime and career than he was a Nerve or a Plimsoul...
