16

A reinterpretation of Bob Dylan's 1978 pop-rock curveball Street Legal featuring a who's-who of Chicago musicians and friends. Only available on gatefold double vinyl LP. 

"This record is called 16. Though it's not a tribute to Street Legal, that Bob Dylan record is the source of the songs here. Back in the 1970s, 12-inch LPs were the common currency. Mostly "rock"—white guys with claims on Art & Meaning—but you could often follow the trails outawrd to country, gospel, R&B, and so on."

ROBBIE PRESSED THESE BEAUTIES HIMSELF ON HIS OWN BOONDOOGLE RECORDS.   We are tickled to offer them to you here.   NOT AVAILABLE IN STORES!!!

We'll let Robbie explain in the way only he can:

"This record is called 16. Though it's not a tribute to Street Legal, that Bob Dylan record is the source of the songs here. Back in the 1970s, 12-inch LPs were the common currency. Mostly "rock"—white guys with claims on Art & Meaning—but you could often follow the trails outward to country, gospel, R&B, and so on.

I had an intense relationship with the records. Like a lot of teenagers, I'd save my money, travel a good distance to a store that had perhaps 2000 records, choose a couple, and go home and play them until memorized. Scarcity and mystery...and the artists played into them. Certain ones seemed to invite you to connect with them, spiritually. They adopted interesting masks; their recordings were replete with quirks, mistakes, eccentricities, holes you could fill in yourself. Eventually, you owned the music, since you were one of its creators."
