Its the same old Jay.
We all change a little, but are products of our past.

I would say Jay changes less than most everyone,
musically speaking.

Good to see the old names here floating around these days.

Thank you Jay and the band.
West Coast attention!

We get BellyUp Tavern trip with the girl, and LA/Bakersfield with my musical bud. Damn. Heck yes.

Pioneertown still a million miles away, but maybe someday.

Thank you guys!

This album is sweet as spring with the windows rolled down.
Forget the politics, useless and divisive.

Let’s hope Jay makes it down to SoCal and doesn’t
make us drive to Santa Barbara or Pioneertown again!

Help a brother out

Great song. Sadly like Joe Citizen Blues and Methamphetamine, the masses and powers that spread music will ignore it. I do personally believe this whistleblower isn’t on par with Ed Snowden, who proved Brennan was lying and the NSA was spying on Americans, and the dude serviceman who spent a year in...

Still my favorite SV album! It was the first one I heard, and I got to see them in Montreal when it was still relatively new, so there's a big nostalgia thing for me and the album too. jay and the gang looked so cool. As others have pointed out, those first five tracks are simply amazing. . Jay bec...

Best album for me since OKEMAH. But I love the guitar driven band stuff. Many great tunes w an edge. I put out the urgent bat signal to friends from Fla to Chicago to here in SoCal.

Is it me or does Jay seem to play with cats that already know and love his music from memory?

How great is this dude? He plays straight forward with love, the songs in his head, heart and soul. He nails them all solo before playing Catching On 30 minutes in like its the most recognizable and well known. Burp. Many of us get Jays work, if not mainstream, and that's how we and Jay would want i...

A band I'd like to see? Son Volt. Period SV1 or SV2. Jay needs a band behind him in a semi-rock Envioronment. What kicks ass more than a great rhythm section?
