Joe E.- Table For Two For One

Underrated vanity pressing, lush and maudlin…late night velveteen dramas. The whole album is perfect, why more people haven’t leaped at the reissue is beyond me. “Taken as a whole, the album suggests nothing less than a poor man’s Elvis taking aim at a Pet Sounds for the middle-aged melancholic, and coming up with a masterpiece that, to borrow a phrase from Theodor Adorno, comprises “a kind of training for life when things have gone wrong.”’
