Jill Sobule
Nashville 2000 [1CD]

There’s more to Jill Sobule than her one big hit, I Kissed A Girl. She’s not only funny but with the gift of irony. Her language has clarity but the meaning is often obscured leaving you with the fun of figuring out just where you stand in the song. Mexican Wrestler is an unlikely love song about love as struggle. The imagery is even more startling when you consider that Sobule is gay. Mary Kay is about forbidden love and the Canadian teacher who loved and made love to her underage student. On the surface, the song condemns the teacher but underlying is the sentiment that it’s a cruel fate for the two lovers. Don’t Kill In Texas is a protest song against the death penalty that also offers the opposite that it’s safer to go beserk and kill somewhere else.

For the uninitiated, there’s plenty of Sobule in this performance at the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville, Apr 11, 2000, opening for Warren Zevon who also guests on two tracks. You get a sweep of her repertoire and talent. It’s been some time since a singer-songwriter can stand up naked, with only her electric guitar, to command your attention. These days they all need the protection of a band, or at least reliable backing tapes to mime to.
