Let the Great World Spin

Album with Joe Hurley

The album is narrated from the perspective of the character Tillie. It was recorded with Hurley’s band The Gents—James Mastro (Ian Hunter), Tony Shanahan (Patti Smith), and Ken Margolis (Cracker)—and features The Chieftains' Paddy Moloney, Matt Sweeney, soul singer Tami Lynn, film actress Antonique Smith, Denis Diken and Joe McGinty. It was produced by Don Fleming and Hurley.[10]
