Robbie Robertson's second solo album, 1991's Storyville, is generally regarded as inferior to his self-titled solo debut from 1987 with its stellar guest list and groundbreaking Daniel Lanois co-production. But whereas that album was indeed very good, Storyville is more consistent, a record with a stronger sense both of place and purpose. Inspired by what could very well be called the most musical of cities, New Orleans, and specifically the old Storyville red light district, it's a magical-sounding record full of atmosphere and great songs. "What About Now" is a co-write with Ivan Neville, and is accompanied by a wonderful video shot on location in New Orleans.
