Ryan Adams 10/28/99 :: Exit/In Nashville (with Gillian Welch)

While I am enjoying some of the warm California sun, it feels like a good time to share my favorite Ryan Adams bootleg ever. There is a pristine, immediate, warm quality to the sound that makes you feel like you are inches from Ryan. The talented, haunting Gillian Welch comes out for some songs, and there is a wonderful variety of rare songs for the setlist. In between his endearing banter, Ryan brings out unreleased gems, early versions of songs I love, and several terrific covers.

Born Yesterday

Funny How I’m Losing You

Memories Of You

Oh My Sweet Valentine

To Be The One

Hey There, Mrs. Lovely

In My Time Of Need

Onslow County

(with Gillian Welch, her song)
Dancing With The Women At The Bar (Whiskeytown song, with Gillian Welch)
with I Want It That Way (Backstreet Boys) at the end
Helpless (Neil Young cover, with Gillian Welch)
Return Of The Grievous Angel (Gram Parsons cover, with Gillian Welch)
16 Days (Whiskeytown song, with Gillian Welch)
Nighttime Gals
Statuettes With Wounds
Avenues (Whiskeytown song)
Avenues (Whiskeytown song)

…and THAT, folks, is one of my favorite live shows ever recorded. I have listened to it more times than I can count. It feels like a whiskey, warming the insides.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
