The Mysterious Tale of How I Shouted Wrong-Eyed Jesus!

Did you ever hear Jim White's "The Mysterious Tale of How I Shouted Wrong-Eyed Jesus?" It's an album that was released in 1997. It's the only record we own by Jim White. It's sort of a masterpiece, a loosely connected narrative collection of quirky songs.  One of our friends originally turned us onto this one. I just recently re-bought it.

It's inventive, dreamy, filled with lots of weird sounds, and quirky arrangements. It's shimmering, mysterious, funny, and just oh so superb.  You should seek it out. It's really, really good. We rented an auto yesterday for a long ride, and we popped in Jim White's CD and just sunk into the beauty and mystery of his creation. It made the ride very enjoyable. The best.
