Peter Case

Peter Case was in full singer-songwriter mode for the release performance for his latest Vanguard label release, "Full Service No Waiting." Still known as leader of L.A.'s revered -- and occasionally revived --Plimsouls, Case's new songs are carefully crafted essays on home and the ramblin' life, a pleasure to listen to.

Acoustic guitar in hand, harmonica-holder around his neck, and an adenoidal wheeze in his voice, Case essayed most of the new album (his third for Vanguard after as many for Geffen) during the lengthy set. He was accompanied by a band, many of whom appear on the new album, though subsequent tour stops will evidently be solo.

Group, which included Don Heffington on percussion, Greg Leisz (k.d. lang, Dave Alvin) on various electric guitars and album producer Andrew Williams on harmonium and guitar, played subtly, for the most part, adding color to Case’s lyrics rather than submerging them.
