    A Cherry Ghost
  1. Thanks @u2roolz for all the episode summaries all year. Super appreciated. And nothing but appreciation for the Tweedys this year. I spent New Years Eve of 2004 watching Jeff (at the Madison Square Garden show) so it was good to do it again. And I loved that they played those Replacement songs tonight. There's that old bootleg (from a show in San Francisco in '97) where Jeff says "Everything we do is based on the Replacements", and it was nice to hear him give a similar tribute tonight. How I would love Jeff to produce a Paul Westerberg album, so my two favorite songwriters could work together. Of course, Paul seems to have taken a break from even making music at home (I think it's been three years since his last songs released under his User 964848511 alias), but I hope that changes in the coming year... Happy new year everyone!
  2. But yours is more up to date! (I missed episode 81, apparently!)
  3. Looking forward to the release! How lucky are we to be fans of an artist who is so incredibly prolific! So, from what I can tell, the new songs he's played on The Tweedy Show that are not on the album are... 1) I'd Rather Be Alone (from Episode 2 of The Tweedy Show) 2) Baby, You're So Miserable (from Episode 5 of The Tweedy Show) 3) Half-Life (which might be Half-Asleep on the new album? It's an Ode to Joy outtake played on Episode 30, and would make a great album closer.) 4) It's Been a Bad Day Lately (from Episode 40 of The Tweedy Show.) 4) Cold Water Falling (a work in progress from Episode 46 of The Tweedy Show.) 5) Whisper (from Episode 47 of The Tweedy Show, which was available on that recent charity album from various artists, that for some reason was only on sale for 24 hours so I missed it. Odd choice to only sell a charity album for a limited time as it would seem to limit the amount of money raised! Hopefully the song will be released --for charity-- in the future.) 6) Inside a Heart, Outside a Heart (very unfinished from Episode 57 of The Tweedy Show.) Did I miss any?
  4. After reading the comments, seems best to keep the playlist to myself, but I'll try to reach out to Susie, and only share it with anyone if she says it's okay (and if she doesn't respond, I'll also keep it to myself.) Thanks for your thoughtful comments!
  5. So using the helpful song list and the episode recaps, and then going to the YouTube videos posted by Susie Tweedy and earlier by Kate Vassos, and using a Youtube to MP3 convertor, I've made a mp3 playlist of all the new songs (and that one unreleased Ode To Joy outtake) played by Jeff on The Tweedy Show so far. (For the songs that have been played more than once, I took what I thought was the best version.) It's up to about 44 minutes at this point. There's lots of banter mixed in of course and varying sound quality, but I think it captures the spirit of the show and most fans would like it (so many great new songs, even if some unfinished). I'd love to share it with the Wilco Archive google drive, if that seems ethical. I assume it's okay as Wilco and Jeff have always allowed taping at shows (I think?) but would love some feedback. I assume anyone going to the Wilco archive would buy the finished versions of the songs if they're ever available for purchase (like "Tell Your Friends" is on Bandcamp.) Also, I actually have no idea how to add to the archive (!), but figure someone here might know. Of course I'd also be happy to share it with the Tweedys if they wanted to use it to raise money for a great cause, too. Or happy to not do anything with it except use it for private use if that's what the Tweedys prefer as well (or if that's what people here think is best, too.)
  6. I found it! (It being the awesome recorded version of "Save It For Me" that was played in the first Tweedy Show episode.) Entered "Save it" in the search function for the "A Shot in the Arm" Facebook group and then easy to find if you scroll down just a little (posted by a generous poster named Ron DeNicolo). https://www.facebook.com/groups/390889574423674/search/?query=%22save%20it%22&epa=SEARCH_BOX I've been lurking around here so thought I'd try to contribute a little!
  7. Been a bit of a lurker but lists are fun so thought I'd join in... YHF ST AGIB BT TWL SBS WTA AM SCH OTJ SW(And if the Mermaid Avenue albums could be in there, the first one would be third on my list and the second after AM.)

    Someone is already selling pre-orders of "Warmer" on ebay for $99. Not sure how that supports indie record stores. Sigh.
  9. He was really incredible tonight. Wow. Loved it. Really hope they do a Road Case of the show.
