USA, 1970, folk rock / singer-songwriter
He was birthed by the inner city. The dirty streets are his dam, the prostitute back alleys his mother. The symbolism of the album cover is no mistake: he’s in his womb, and he’s above the city. But the womb is one of his own making, the womb of his untouchable heart. He’s wrapped himself in it like armor, protecting himself from…everything, and more importantly, from everyone. He sings of social problems, but they don’t seem to affect him directly. He’s outside looking in. He’s in his calm bubble. He sings of what could be personal problems, but he doesn’t really have any, since he eschews personal relationships.
