Editor's note: I'm not well-acquainted with the fables of Aesop but I can conjecture that this guy does them no justice with his accent and plain voice. Though I will admit to liking a few of them just the same.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
