Proselytizing about American folk singer-songwriter Greg Brown

A week ago, a Facebook friend asked people to name albums with only excellent songs; I proselytized with four by American folk singer-songwriter Greg Brown from 1990 to 1996: "Down in There", "Dream Café", "The Poet Game", and "Further In". Then the other day, I shuffled the music on my iPhone for a suggestion and got another Brown album, "One Big Town" from 1989. As I wrote to a friend, it's not even close to being one of his best albums, but it's still full of moving songs. If you like Dylan, Waits, Young, Cohen, and Mitchell and don't know Greg Brown, be sure to check him out soon. Proselytizing over! (Andrew Shields, #111words, 7 March 2022)
