2023 CD release
IT SURE BEATS WORKIN'
"Howie Newman is a born storyteller, utilizing thoughtful insight, skilled musicianship, and delightful humor. It Sure Beats Workin' may be his best album to date. His passion for baseball is still there – 'The Other Tony C' vividly relates an obscure true story – but there's so much more to the CD. It is definitely his most personal work and absolutely worth a listen or three."
Host of The Folk Revival on WICN (Worcester (Mass.) Public Radio)
