Whiskeytown :: Stranger's Almanac
I am anxious for the arrival of a deluxe release of the Whiskeytown's seminal major label release, Stranger's Almanac . This two disc edition will be available on March 4.
Along with the original album, which included such alt-country classics as "Excuse Me While I Break My Own Heart Tonight", "16 Days" and "Avenues", the second disc promises to be chock full of outtakes, demos and unreleased songs.
Though I expect many (if not all) of the extra recordings to be ones which have come out through bootlegs such as A Stranger Is Born, I can't wait to hear songs such as "Ten Seconds Till The End Of The World" and the Fleetwood Mac cover, "Dreams" in their shined-up, fully remastered beauty and glory.
From Stranger's Almanac:
Everything I Do
and a few extras:
Theme For A Trucker
Dreams (Fleetwood Mac cover)
