Can’t tell you how excited I got when I read the news about this……………
“Truckdriver, Gladiator, Mule” is the complete Neko Case discography on vinyl. Remastered from the original analog tapes, many of these hard-to-find and out of print LPs are now available together for the first time. Includes an 80 page full-color photography book designed and curated by Neko (exclusive to this collection!) and a vinyl slipmat – all in a handy-dandy storage box. Albums include:
Furnace Room Lullaby
The Tigers Have Spoken
Fox Confessor Brings The Flood
The Worse Things Get, The More I Fight, The More I Fight, The More I Love You
Back in 2000 Neko Case and Her Boyfriends topped the Peel Festive 50 with their track Twist the Knife here’s a bootleg of that performance, the quality is not the best but still it’s a fine listen with tracks from the Furnace Room Lullaby album along with a great selection of covers including the Everly Brothers Bowling Green that appeared on The Virginian album, Bessie Griffin’s Lord Don’t Move the Mountain after which Loose (I assume it’s the same Loose) get a shout out, Aretha Franklin’s Runnin’ Out of Fools and Look for Me (I’ll Be Around) by Ketty Lester
Here’s the two tracks that start and end the session, you can get the whole thing Live At BBC Maida Vale.
Two fantastics tracks from two great artists from ACL.
The show premieres today on PBS.
