I didn’t know a thing about Leo Frank until I listened to Mark Rubin’s The Triumph of Assimilation, so no wonder Rubin is so damn mad. Being Jewish in the American south is pretty hard, and Rubin tells all about it on the record; I think the key track here is “The Ballad of Leo Frank,” which tells a missing piece of Jewish-American history and makes the album worth listening to all by itself.
But the rest is good too, so check it out, and also my review for No Depression while you’re at it.
