The Little Willies - Words and Music - 2012

Little Willies revisit WFUV

'The Little Willlies: For The Good Times' The Little Willies (Lee Alexander, Jim Campilongo, Norah Jones, Richard Julian and Dan Rieser) have returned with 'For The Good Times' -- the rousing follow-up to their eponymous 2006 debut. Ahead of its 2012 release, the band previewed songs from the new album at a few select shows last fall, including a performance at The Bell House in Brooklyn. In this hour, hear selections from that live set, and listen in on a conversation with Norah, Jim, Richard and WFUV's Rita Houston, discussing the origins of this new collection of songs, and how a band playing country classics fits just fine in New York City.
