"John Wesley Harding" is the title of a 1967 album by Bob Dylan. And it was taken as a pseudonym by British singer-songwriter Wesley Stace, who's been active since the late 80s. He's released 17 albums to date.

Recently he's dropped the moniker and has been going under his legal name. His new album is called Wesley Stace's John Wesley Harding - just to muddy the waters a little.

William Dart has been a long time fan. He reviews this new album and plays a few songs from a couple of earlier ones.
