Album Notes
Recording information: 1971.With his third album, singer-songwriter Loudon Wainwright III would employ a full band, fleshing out his folky songs, rocking the rockers, and giving a little bounce to fun ditties like "Dead Skunk." But 1971's ALBUM II finds Wainwright still in stripped-down, acoustic, coffee shop mode, which suits his intimate, confessional tunes just fine.Though he suffered comparisons to Bob Dylan, Wainwright is his own stylist: he has an off-hand manner with description, he isn't afraid to show sentiment, and his comedy can be both cutting and charming. The highlight of the album is undoubtedly the witty, desperate, and heartbreaking "Motel Blues," but there's also the silly nod to new fatherhood, "Be Careful There's a Baby in the House," written about Wainwright's new-born son Rufus.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
