Son Volt – B-Sides & Rarites

This is a nice collection of some unreleased and live songs. A few of these songs are available on the excellent Son Volt Retrospective (buy it if you don’t have it), but the majority of these are fairly hard to come by. The ones that are on the retrospective are indicated with an asterisk. Some standout tracks are the “Windfall” demo, the wonderful cover of Towne Van Zandt’s “Rex’s Blues” with Kelly Willis (This track is so good it’s worth having twice!), the acoustic version of “Drown”, the Byrds’ “Truck Stop Girl” (with Kelly Willis again)….pretty much all the Kelly Willis songs are outstanding. The live version of “Tear Stained Eye” is pretty damned good too. Also of note is the version of “Lookin’ At The World Through A Windshield” on here which is different from the one on the retrospective (which is from the Rig Rog Deluxe album).

    Hello! I just wanted to ask in case you ever have any issues with hackers? My last weblog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any approaches to stop hackers?
