One of America's great modern day vocalists and songwriters, Mark Lanegan is a man whose career has been defined by an unwillingness to sit still. In addition to his time in the Screaming Trees and a fruitful solo career the Pacific-Northwest icon has worked with Queens of the Stone Age, Mad Season, former Belle & Sebastian vocalist Isobel Campbell, Melissa Auf der Maur and formed The Gutter Twins with Afghan Whigs/Twilight Singers' Greg Dulli.
For 1999's I'll Take Care of You, his fourth solo effort for Sup Pop, Lanegan chose to cover songs by artists who have influenced and inspired him over the years, including Jeffrey Lee Pierce of the Gun Club, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Buck Owens, Leaving Trains, O.V. Wright, Fred Neil, Tim Hardin, Tim Rose, and more. Prior to this gatefold 180g LP version, I'll Take Care of You was only available on vinyl via a long-out-of-print European run, and in the One Way Street box set.
