We gave it a B+

Roots rocker Gurf Morlix, best known as Lucinda Williams’ ax man and producer, steps out with a thoroughly likable solo debut, Toad of Titicaca, full of quirky songs about paranoia (”Wild Things,” with guest Buddy Miller) and ardor gone wrong. Killer tunes: ”Dan Blocker,” which names Bonanza’s actors, and ”Greatest Show on Earth,” a love song to the swamp girl and sideshow freaks of old. B+
