Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 solo album from the singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. In contrast to his collaborative work with the Folk Implosion, Davis's solo work in the '90s was about as solo as solo gets. He played all the instruments and did all of the cover art for records like Pure Night and Leave Home, as well as for assorted singles and compilation tracks. Having been there and done that, Davis charts a new course with Spare Parts, right down to the cover art, which was done by Boston-area painter and photographer Walter Crump. No less than eight musicians and three engineers lend their talents to the ten tracks and 65+ minutes of this double-LP. Spare Parts mines an acoustic singer/songwriter vein while avoiding a stylistic rut by veering back and forth between artistic formulas in a way that recalls Folk Implosion's Dare to Be Surprised.
