Song of the Week: "Mr. Wilson"

Here is the opening track--a song about one of my heroes, Brian Wilson--from John Cale's terrific 1975 album Slow Dazzle. Brian Eno and Phil Manzanera play on this album, too, so it's got a bit of the Roxy/Eno feel to it, which may explain why I love this album so damn much. For my money, it's Cale's three albums for Island in the mid-seventies that are his best work.
