Chris Whitley: Long Way Around: An Anthology 1991-2001

Chris Whitley doesn’t consider himself a singer, or a songwriter, or a guitar player – even though that’s what he does. He’d call himself an ‘expressionist,’ akin to those early 20th century painters who wanted to evoke deeper feelings than what meets the eye. The Columbia-Legacy anthology aptly traces a decade of Whitley’s musical conjuring.
