The "new" one, LADIES' LOVE ORACLE, was actually self-released in September
2000 (and still available through cdbaby.com) is more or less Grant and his
12-string and a minimum of percussion accompaniment. I liked it better than
MOBILIZE, really, just for "Lonesome Serenade" and "St. Expedite". In the
Grant Lee Buffalo/Phillips spectrum, I'd rank them thusly:
1. MIGHTY JOE MOON
4 (tie). LADIES' LOVE ORACLE
4 (tie). JUBILEE
Which is not to say that I don't love each and every one of them. GLB/P

listen to it *again* to be sure. <g>
