Loudon Wainwright III's Years in the Making, is a two-disc compendium of 45 years of Loudon’s offbeat, rare and unissued tracks. A true “audio-biography” that boasts orphaned album cuts, live recordings, radio appearances, home demos, and more, that come together to offer a never-before-seen perspective on Loudon’s public and private selves. Notable figures from Loudon’s life pop up throughout as well: Kate McGarrigle, Suzzy Roche, Bill Frisell, Van Dyke Parks, Chaim Tannenbaum, David Mansfield, Steve Goodman, George Gerdes and the Wainwright children Rufus, Martha, Lucy and Lexie.
The two-disc, 42-track set is divided into seven chapters and will be released in a 60-page hardbound book. The artwork was done by New Yorker cartoonist Ed Steed (who drew on Father John Misty’s Grammy-winning packaging for Pure Comedy). The package includes dozens of scans of documents, introspective musings and other artifacts from what Loudon calls his “swinging life,” in addition to paintings and drawings done by friends and fans.
