Peace Town,” is a collection of final recordings made by the iconic singer, songwriter and song interpreter Jimmy LaFave. Consisting of 20 tracks he was able to record before he died.

The album includes a heart-wrenching take on “It Makes No Difference,” Robbie Robertson song recorded by The Band. It’s one of the tracks that reflect the depth and breadth of his seminal musical inspirations, including his takes on Chuck Berry’s “The Promised Land” and “Let My Love Open the Door” by Pete Townshend of The Who. Foremost among the artists LaFave admired was Oklahoma folk icon Woody Guthrie. LaFave had been given copies of Guthrie’s lyrics by Nora Guthrie, to set to music. “Peace Town” includes three songs LaFave composed to Guthrie Lyrics: the title track, “Salvation Train” and “Sideline Woman.”

LaFave’s affection for other musical artists from Oklahoma heard on the album are his versions of Leon Russell’s “Help Me Through the Day” and J.J. Cale’s “Don’t Go To Strangers,” plus “My Oklahoma Home (It Blowed Away)” by siblings Bill and Sis Cunningham. Hailed as “one of the finest Dylan interpreters ever,” LaFave brings his distinctive touch to “My Back Pages,” “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome” and “What Good Am I?”.
