Fifty From Twenty (20th anniversary Box Set)

Its Here Its Here! click here:  http://cdbaby.com/all/chrischandler Celebrating 20 years on the road, poet and storyteller Chris Chandler is as hilarious and entertaining as he is provocative and rabble-rousing, delivering vignettes about politics and modern culture with the fire of a Baptist Preacher. He has released 13 CDs and 10 tapes and 10 music videos – this is a terrific retrospective 4 CD 1 DVD covering all of his 20 years on the road.  His appearances on street corners to the main stages of large festivals never fail to wow an audience – insightful tales of a world gone slightly mad, accompanied by a wide variety of musical styles. He has performed on thousands of stages across North America, working with such legendary figures as Allen Ginsberg, Pete Seeger, Mojo Nixon and Ani DiFranco. The late great Utah Phillips called Chris "the best performance poet I have ever seen." Whats on it you ask? Check this out - see how many of these you know How many do you remember? CD 1 1.
