"World boogie is coming" was one of the favorite blessings of their father, producer Jim Dickinson, and his spirit is all over this one, along with the help of long-time friends, Lightnin' Malcolm, Duwayne and Garry Burnside, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Robert Plant, Chris Chew, and others.

Monday night we celebrate Ani DiFranco's birthday with her 3rd album, 1992's Imperfectly. With a continued emphasis on hard-hitting, deeply personal songs touching on sexuality, politics, and the rough life of a traveling indie musician, DiFranco also branched out in new directions on this one, adding outside musicians for bass drums, viola, trumpet, etc. Always a WNCW favorite, always a Righteous Babe, Happy Birthday Ani!
