  • Description

    Peter Case is one of America's most gifted singer-songwriters. For over 30 years, from street singer to soul-punk bandleader (The Plimsouls) to solo acoustic performer, Case has used his songs to crash barriers in popular music. On this 3CD, 47-song ode to Peter Case you'll hear the energy of the tribute in each of these recordings, which individually and as a whole are a "case for Case", an argument for the talent of one of America's most prolific, under-rated, original and best songwriters. This two-year project was completed because musicians, fans and friends love Peter Case, both the man and his music. This tribute aims to bring out that close connection Case has had to a wide range of noted singer-songwriters, such as Todd Snider, Dave Alvin, Hayes Carll, Victoria Williams, Kim Richey and John Prine who are included alongside many more on this unique compilation. The label Hungry For Music is a grassroots volunteer-driven charity organization with a nationwide and international outreach. Hungry for Music's mission is to inspire under privileged children by bringing positive musical and creative experiences into their lives.
