      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:

      2. FUZZY
      4 (tie). LADIES' LOVE ORACLE
      4 (tie). JUBILEE
      6. MOBILIZE
