When I learned yesterday that  Mark Erelli’s 8th studio album Little Vigils was available for digital download at Amazon, and itunes and other locations, I quickly went and picked it up. I have been a fan of the Boston area Erelli since I picked up his debut self-titled CD many years ago. His albums are always a treat and contain a ton of great songs. One of my early song  favorites was “Do It Everyday” from that debut album and I was disappointed when he didn’t play it the only time I ever saw him live. But I do have an autograph in an album that says I owe you a “Do It Everyday”! But each album from Compass and Companion to Delivered is a little different. His last two albums Hope and Other Casualties and Delivered both contain many heartfelt and moving songs. Like  “Volunteers” from Delivered and this one “The Only Way” from Hope and Other Casualties. Ellis Paul and Vance Gilbert covered this song nicely on their Side of the Road CD (Here’s a review of the CD)
