Looking forward to Tonight's the Night Roxy too, but it will be generally available after RSD.
Jay has stated it's one of his favorite albums--bet he grabs a copy too. :D

Anything new or different on this reissue?

Looks like it is On Chant and Strum on green vinyl in The Search packaging. Tracklists are identical. Anything I'm missing? Remixes or bonus tracks?

Thanks, Tim! Very nice and appreciated. Jay's voice is spot on, just as rich as ever. I still have Hoping Machine and Question to watch, but it's been great so far. Farrar wrote These Roads Don't Move, right? That one was a real treat to hear Jay sing it. I think Jay was responsible for most of the...

Jackson Browne, Maui Arts and Cultural Center (Christmas gift to wife). Saw him with Warren Zevon opening in high school (1976), not since. Then Jay in Sacramento and at Terrapin (yay). Just saw Queens of the Stone Age in SF. Loudest show ever. Stupidly, painfully, unmusically loud. I like them, and...

Gary just nails it

Maybe a new appreciation for how good and multifaceted his playing is. I think I took him for granted. This is seriously great--beyond accompaniment, it's like another voice for the songs.

So great to hear Jay sing the lead on These Roads Don't Move! Seems like he gave Gibbard the prettiest melodies on that record. This version is just beautiful. And the surprising bonus of humor in the intro, wtf?!

Ha--just got the email. Giants retiring #25 this summer. He may have been a jerk, but he was OUR jerk!

Any good new stuff at the merch table? Like maybe a live Son Volt 2017 tour CD?

Straightaways reconsidered

Straightaways was treated unfairly by some reviewers, compared and contrasted with Trace. I think about it like a baseball team. Trace may be more consistent top to bottom, but the top of the Straightaways order is so great, with an MVP hitting cleanup. That "murderers row" of Caryatid Easy, Back in...

I'm looking forward to seeing Jay in any circumstance, and hearing Andrew's new stuff. Hope they come back to the Sweetwater. Son Volt opening for "Turnpike Troubadors"--seriously? Never heard of 'em. Assumed they were some "Highwaymen" like supergroup. Nope. Jason Isbell on ACL this weekend. Set yo...

Pretty ironic that Jeff titles his 1st post-UT album "AM", while "AM" inspires one of the all-time great lines of an all-time great song on Jay's 1st record.

A.M.: Deluxe Edition comprises the original album and eight unreleased bonus tracks—including Uncle Tupelo’s last studio recording, "When You Find Trouble,"

Is this the 1st UT recording to appear on a non-UT release? I assume Jay had to consent. I wonder if he's actually on it.
