Jack Oblivian Loses His Weekend, Not His Way

Jack Oblivian Loses His Weekend, Not His Way

In our recent tribute to Memphis songwriters, Greg Cartwright singled out one local bard who single-handedly inspired him to a higher level of songwriting: Jack Oblivian. And that nod to his writing is borne out not only by his contributions to the Compulsive Gamblers and the Oblivians, but in his solo work. His streak of great songs continues unabated with this year's spring release, Lost Weekend (Black & Wyatt), credited to Jack Oblivian & the Dream Killers.
