Dick Stusso
In Heaven

Given that most of the original tapes for Dick Stusso’s sophomore LP were lost after his house was burgled, it’s a miracle that In Heaven has seen the light of day at all. However, after that misfortune the Oakland raconteur rolled up his sleeves and redid the LP. Now the wrong side of 30, Stusso’s lyrics turn away from the post-Beck zen-bum outlook of Nashville Dreams to deal with mortality and the future. The music, however, steers close to the bluesy-croonerdom that has served Stusso well in the past. Think Mac Demarco if he paid more faithful homage to his influences.
