Will Oldham on Bonnie 'Prince' Billy

This is a great book about Will Oldham, the singer-songwriter that made dozens of beautiful records under a couple of different names: Palace Brothers, Palace Music, Palace Songs, and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy. 
His long-time friend Alan Licht compiled these conversations with Mr. Oldham, he talks about his writing, his collaborations with Björk and Johnny Cash and the stories he tells in his songs. It's an absolute must-have for for fans of Will Oldham but it's also a great read when you love music and the people behind it. 
Included in the book is a complete and extended discography.

Will Oldham is also featured in and on the cover of the #2 Autumn / Winter issue of The Travel Almanac. He talks about his travels and there are some great pictures from his personal collection in there. We are waiting for the new issue, but we still have a few copies of #2 Winter / Summer left in stock.
