This is a nice little Todd Snider boot from a 2001 show at The Handlebar in Greenville, SC. He runs through alot of his old standards here, and tells some good storys too. He also plays a John Prine song (Illegal Smile) and a couple of Neil Young songs to finish it off. Sound Quality is not the greatest, but just turn it up……it’s just really low volume. I forgot to include the artwork with the file, so you can either save the pictures above, or download the artwork by itself….sorry.
I love Todd Snider, he just put out a collection of outtakes and rarities (Peace, Love, and Anarchy, released this week) and has a DVD coming out in a few weeks that’s going to kick all kinds of ass. From the trailer (see down below) it’s looks great, and includes lots of good footage similar to this clip here from Grimey’s in Nashville(which may or may not be on the DVD….hopefully it will be). I just found out there is also limited edition live album from Grimey’s that just came out as well!!!! Nice!! Todd is giving us lot’s of good stuff this month!
Trailer for upcoming DVD
So yesterdays post was just a primer of things to come! Here we have Todd Sniders fantastic 2003 live album “Near Truths & Hotel Rooms”.
This is a great album and a great introduction to Todd Snider if you are not familiar with him. He is one of the best songwriters around today and also an excellent storyteller, and this album showcases both of those traits. This is Todd at his best, just him a guitar and an occasional harmonica. Standout tracks include: D.B. Cooper, I Can’t Complain, Beer Run (which you may have heard on the horrible Bob & Tom Show), Statistician’s Blues….but the absolute highlight of the whole album is The Story of the Devil’s Backbone Tavern. Give it a listen
So I still haven’t been able to up anything new…..I tried but after it spent 3 hours uploading it said “Filesize too large”. You think they would tell you something like that upfront.
anyway, to tide you over is a great performance by Todd Snider where he explains the inspiration for his song “If Tomorrow Never Comes”.
