Marshall Crenshaw's latest recording, his first in six years, is called Jaggedland. In his sixth appearance on Mountain Stage since 1991, Crenshaw performs five songs from Jaggedland, as well as his well-known hit "Someday Someway," from his self-titled 1982 debut. Crenshaw is joined onstage by a stellar group of musicians: Graham Maby, Tony Leone on drums and David Mansfield on steel guitar and mandolin.

Engineer and producer Stewart Lerman (Antony & The Johnsons, The Roches, The Hooters) inspired Crenshaw to begin work on Jaggedland and wound up producing two tracks, including "Someone Told Me," which is performed here. The remaining tracks were recorded in Los Angeles with producer Jerry Boys (R.E.M., Richard Thompson, Buena Vista Social Club). The album features backing music by studio dream team Greg Leisz and Jim Keltner, as well as a guest spot by vibraphonist Emil Richards.

This is a repeat performance of Mountain Stage.
