True Blues
Andrew Vachss' Safe House
A Collection of the Blues

"Vachss' novels are the written–word equivalent of the Blues—
if the music moves you, the writing might too."

Andrew Vachss: Safe House - A Collection of the BluesAndrew Vachss' Safe House A Collection of the Blues was a companion album to the Safe House novel featuring fifteen of Andrew Vachss' favorite songs, plus a never–before–published short story by Vachss. It was released on CD and cassette back in 1998, by Repeat/Relativity Records. It's been off the shelves for a while now, but not before it did its job, raising tens of thousands of dollars for Community Works and Licensed for Life.

If you want the exquisite details, each and every musician featured, here are the credits to every single track.
