Gatefold double LP version. A "country rock opera" by Howe Gelb's new project Giant Giant Sand. "Just when you thought Giant Sand couldn't get any bigger, Howe Gelb has done just that by regrouping, expanding and magnifying his vision with the newest version of past ensembles, calling it (appropriately enough) Giant Giant Sand. As a sort of homage, he's named the album Tucson after the town he's called home for forty years. Taking place in the town of Tucson, the story revolves around a ?semi grizzled man with overt boyish naïveté? who sets off to escape his hometown and embarks on a life-changing road trip; eschewing all his worldly goods and leaving his girlfriend, encountering jail at the Mexican border, finding love at a train station saloon and fearing the end of the world. The album is a dusty work of art, conjuring images of the desert, rivers, and a cactus-strewn landscape."
