Wired (By request...)
Jesse Winchester contributed this wrenching song to the final episode of the third season of The Wire. To accompany the tale of Baltimore's massively corrupt journalists, "Step by Step" echoes the rhythms of his native Louisiana. Having spent the Vietnam war in Canada, he established himself in Quebec as the opening act for The Band. His songs have been recorded by everyone from Jerry Garcia to Reba McEntire (is that really that wide a range?)
