If you are asking yourself if it’s really a good thing that character actor Wilford Brimley (John Carpenter’s The Thing, beloved 80’s slasher Death Valley) has released 3 recordings since 1990, consider this. Brimley, himself, has stated that he isn’t much of singer. But his love of music and, most importantly, the joy he receives from collaborating with talented jazz musicians has led him to enjoy a modest side career of sorts.
Indeed, Brimley talk-sings most of his numbers such as “Being Green” and the title song on his first release, I’m Old Fashioned. But, as noted by several music critics of far more import than I, occasionally this mild prankster indulges in a phrase or two that actually places him in the ranks of the finest singers.
Besides, can you really fault an arctic miner for having a good time, now and then?
