Excitable Boy

It's a bit of a resurrection for Warren Zevon. The gifted and demented singer and songwriter died a public death with his final recording session being filmed by VH1. Now it seems like the springtime is blooming Zevon. Three of his albums have been remastered and released with addition cuts by Rhino. His long-suffering ex Crystal has released a biography, and New West just issued Preludes, a collection of Zevon rarities. For a Zevon fan like me, it's an opportunity to re-examine his genius and to dig out the old tunes. You'll be hearing a bit of Zevon over the next few weeks.
