Part 1 Part 3 Places of Power. Lonesome Coyote. Handmade Music. $13.95 LP/cassette, $22.95 CD. ***1/2
Our favorite whipping boy has done it again. Places of Power carries the listener through his many moods and voices - and what a variety of voices he has here! it's hard to believe they all come out of the same throat, the same tongue, the same lips and teeth. From a Marianne Faithfull-like mondirge, to the black black blues of Rabbit Brown and Noah Lewis, to the Rimbaud-tinged Dylanesque imagery floating in the back of the mind, to the hyper-mystic babble like Pink Floyd's most elaborate, he displays a marvelous versatility of voice, instrumentation, and direction.
Born in the necessity to bare his every inch of soul to us (with all the raw red nerves hanging out flapping in the wind), this double double album marks a turning point in Coyote's career. He finally comes face to face with the desert ...

Way out in the wilderness
a Lone Coyote Calls.
Your eyes fix on the shotgun
that's a-hangin' on the wall.
