Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2016-08-03 
Outlaw Country, piano ballads, tale of lovers, miscreants. Rerelease of 1975 masterpiece. Fans of early Tom Waits, storytelling and songwriting. Texas borderland tales. Mostly barroom piano player style, tales of whores and drinking, guns and storms, Mexico, LA. Think early Tom Waits born in El Paso. Allen is a well known visual artist and he's collaborated with likes of David Byrne (film True Stories).
