Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). This is really a first album from a young guy? Darden has such an ear for a distinctive melody and a curious lyric, that each of these songs becomes your friend after just a few listens. Two Dollar Novels" is an especially fine song. So good in fact, that I'm always surprised Nanci Griffith didn't record it for herself.
