THIS IS FOR BLACK FRIDAY 2022. “History and legend have often found their way into my songs,” reflects Grant-Lee Phillips. “But sometimes, I don't have to look quite so far to find inspiration.” Walking in the Green Corn by Grant-Lee Phillips is ten songs drawn from Phillips' intensive investigations into his native lineage. Phillips, who is Muskogee (Creek), elliptically explores the intersection of past and present, personal and political. While the songs delve deeply into the subconscious mystery of his own back-story, they simultaneously reveal the resonance and insight of ancient myth in parallel to contemporary man's emotions, actions, and errors. The original vinyl LP for Walking in the Green Corn was available as a limited edition pressing upon its 2012 release. For the 10th anniversary edition of the album, the record is being reissued for the first time and pressed on green corn vinyl. The LP includes a bonus 45 single of totally unreleased material, including the long-lost song "Red River," an alternate version of "The Straighten Outer" and an electric version of "Thunderbird".
