"Mermaid Avenue"

Fuckin' great album. My sister got it for me for Christmas.

Its all rockabilly -- like it just crawled out of a dented trashcan in a place where Tulsa seems like the Big City. It has an unfortunate appearance by Natalie Merchant, who rocked awesomely in 10,000 Maniacs but became too affected for my taste. Otherwise, its got Billy Bragg and Wilco.
