I don’t have much info on this, just that it was recorded sometime between Faithless Street & Stranger’s Almanac and never released. I read somewhere that Ryan Adams wanted it released when Faithless Street was re-released but that never happened for whatever reason. I could not find any artwork online so I just whipped something up real quick.

Released in 1997 fresh on the heels of Stranger’s Almanac, this now out of print E.P. is a collection of early recordings and was released by their first record label to try to capitalize on their major label debut. It also features some of Whiskeytown’s (and Ryan Adam’s) most “alt-country” songs to date. What that means is there’s alot of punk in this here country (think Uncle Tupelo). Featuring 8 songs, a couple are alternate versions of songs available on the essential Faithless Street (Tennessee Square & Angels Are Messengers From God, which became the title track off Faithless Street)
1. Take Your Guns To Town
2. Nervous Breakdown
3. Tennessee Square
4. Captain Smith
5. Macon, Georgia County Line
6. Pawnshop Ain’t No Place For A Wedding Ring
8. Angels Are Messengers From God

This is a nice little acoustic set from Whiskeytown’s acoustic tour supporting “Stranger’s Almanac”. That’s about all the information I have on this, but it’s a good set of tunes. The highlight of this disc are the Mountain Stage songs at the end….perfect sound quality, and great, great performances. Also worth Mention is an excellent cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams”.
