  1. Too me, “Trace” will always be closest to my heart

  2. I can’t attend the show, but Jay’s best disc thus far is “Sebastopol”.

  3. Trace is great but my personal favorite is Okemah and the Melody of Riot.

  4. I’m more of a Junkies fan, I remember the first time I heard Trinity sessions ( The original – not the remake) I was working at a now defunct chain of record stores ( believe in us …) and was just floored. Anyway, please put me in the hat for tix.

  5. Psst, it’s 7/16 not 6/16

  6. Id have to second Okemah and the Melody of Riot…

  7. thanks, pedant

  8. Hey, my favorite farrar related record has got to be Son Volt’s “Trace”

  9. My fave Farrar-related lp is Son Volt’s

  10. Trace was it for me as well.

  11. What a great show!

    For me, it’d have to be the first Uncle Tupelo album, “No Depression.” I was working at a record store when we got in Michelle Shocked’s “Arkansas Traveller” cd. Fantastic. She does a tune with Uncle Tupelo which is just great. Then I read some article about UT. So I ordered the first two records and was just blown away. I tried to turn on my boss to ’em, but the only tune he really dug was “No Depression” (he was an old Carter Family fanatic and loved what UT did with the song.) So that was the one I got to play to death in the store.

    Then later that year they came out with their third record and it just knocked me out also. But you have to put me down for “No Depression.”

  12. This show is one of the shows listed under livenation’s $7.11 ticket specials. Take advantage of it!

  13. terrior blues – tears me apart

  14. Would love to see this show. Favorite JR-related LP is “Still Feel Gone” Anything with “Still Be Around” on it is an automatic ticket to heaven.

  15. love your show. trace was it for me as well. 🙂

  16. I got into them after seeing them open for the Drive-by Truckers a couple years back, I think my favorite is Okeemah and the Melody of Riot.

  17. I love trace, I really do but I do love The Search a bit more. I think it is the horns on the album that really sell me, it gave this very warm, almost 1950’s sound to the whole thing, but with a thick guitar sound.
