Birmingham Show

I'm heading to the Birmingham show tonight. It's been a year and a half since my last SV show and I am more than ready. Also looking forward to Old Salt Union.

The second half of the podcast is definitely better than the first. The second half actually seemed like a conversation.

No St. Louis date....hopefully later in the year. I live one mile from Lafayette's in Memphis, but the last week in June is one of the hardest weeks of the year for me to get off work. I believe this is the first Memphis date for SV since.....2011 Maybe ? I should definitely be able to make the Birm...

I was gonna wait until the album was released to give this tune a listen but I couldn't do it. I love the song. It's been running through my head since the first listen.

I just finished the book and I loved it. Probably half the book is devoted to Jeff's pre-Wilco life. I don't believe there any huge revelations regarding Uncle Tupelo but it's nice to hear the story (the good and bad) from a firsthand account. One thing Jeff did confirm is that Brian Henneman was of...

Someone on the Postcard from Hell group on Facebook mentioned that Jay has supposedly reached out to Jeff to ask if there are any more items in the Uncle Tupelo recording vault that could be released. If it’s true, that news escaped me. Also if it’s true, something seems astir. Tim in the ATL Jeff ...

I don't love the album, but I like it. I think it could have been cut from 12 songs to 10.
I really like Lo-Fi and Stovall's Grove.

Good stuff, TragicFig. Thanks. I met Jay at a book signing in Nashville a few years ago and he was great. It was a scheduled signing and he was pushing his book, but he took time to chat with everyone who wanted. I also met Gary Hunt in an Oxford, Mississippi bookstore a few years ago prior to a SV ...

I aint no playa but I did just finish Robbie Robertson’s book, "Testimony" last evening. I enjoyed it a lot. I read Levon Helm’s "This Wheel’s on Fire" about five years ago and came away feeling that Robertson was a bit of a back stabber, prima donna and more of a glory hound than the rest of the b...
