Loudon Wainwright III: Whimsical Wainwright

Chris Charlesworth, Melody Maker, 24 July 1976

NEW YORK: The smart way to begin a story about Loudon Wainwright III would be to concoct some snappy couplet not unlike those that form the basis of most of his songs, but the man whom I met for a couple of beers it the Russian Tea Room on 57th Street last week did very little to inspire humour. He seemed pretty cool.
