"In from the cold is Larry Jon Wilson, with his first album since 1980, an intense masterpiece of his casual performing style. Once upon a time in the 1970's, Larry Jon Wilson released four acclaimed albums and garnered a reputation as one of the best new 'outlaw country' songwriters around alongside such hallowed names as Mickey Newbury, Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark. Starting his career late (learning guitar in 1970, at the age of 30) and leaving it early (ten years later), he walked away from the business, not the music. Signed to Monument Records by Fred Foster on the strength of a letter and a demo cassette, his legacy has been the four albums of deep country soul released between 1975 and 1979, but none of them came as close to the bone as this new, appropriately self-titled album. Larry Jon Wilson has been quietly playing shows on and off in the southern states over the last two decades - but it wasn't until some new friends twisted his arm with recording gear in tow on the 15th floor of a Perdido Key condominium that a new album became a reality. This album stands apart from his '70s recordings. On Larry Jon Wilson, he stands mostly alone, occasionally accompanied by a single fiddle. With the release of Larry Jon Wilson, the world is privy to the Larry Jon Wilson sound, clear and worn, deep and resonant."
