  1. Oh, yeah-i forgot to include All I Need—you’re right, it definitely has A Shot In the Arm lyrics.
  2. Some observations and a question after listening to the outtakes/alternate takes and demos: 1) No Hurry sounds like it became I Am Trying To Break Your Heart after some new lyrics and other tweaks 2) We're just Friends/Yee Haw sounds like the music became Just a Kid My question: anyone else wondering if the name Viking Dan is a not-so-subtle reference to Vicodin, which-as the liner notes and Jeff's book tell us--was flowing freely at the time, or is it just me? That song is one of my favorites on this box set, btw. Really sounds raw and desperate and backs up a lot of the
  3. That was definitely GBV's Teenage FBI they were singing.
  4. I bought the double CD and-at least for me-the multiple download notices were 1) a download of the album tracks and (happily) 2) a download of the bonus track that was vinyl-only for a little while. The second one arrived a week or two after the album was released, I seem to remember.
  5. With absolutely no disrespect intended, I think that the idea that what got Trump elected was the disaffected American blue collar worker who was worried about his job and financial future and his voice being heard...is dishonest at best and delusional at worst. News outlets and pundits have been trying hard to convince themselves and everyone else that was what happened. But after the events of this week and some of the thousands of ugly and truly shitty things said and done by opposing citizens and politicians during Obama's time in office and especially during the 2016 election, you will ne
  6. Shawnsolo73: as far as meeting the band goes, we've usually had good luck just hanging out near the buses after the show. Everyone in the band has been very gracious and friendly, but we've never seen Jeff Tweedy signing or chatting after a show. Good luck!
  7. Thanks, too from me, for the links. Never got the email either, so I was worried. Went off without a hitch, though!
  8. Yeah, this is starting to worry me--no email yet with the presale info. I even created a new account with a new email and...nothing. Also tried emailing Songkick/CrowdSurge but haven't received a reply. It's past close-of-business the day before the presale, so this really doesn't look good.
  9. I think they're in the process of switching us over: when I tried to sign in to Crowd Surge with the email account I used for Front Gate it said my email address wasn't recognized, so I assume they haven't gotten to my account yet. That's why I'm a bit concerned that some people including myself might be shut out of the presale happening in less than 48 hours. Oh, well. I'll try emailing Songkick and see what happens. I can also create my own Crowd Surge account and hope that works for the presale.
  10. Has everyone had their Front Gate account switched to Crowd Surge yet? I haven't gotten the email with the transfer instructions, so I'm getting a little concerned about being able to do the presale in two days...I'm wondering if opening up a new Crowd Surge account will allow me to do the presale or if it HAS to be done via the Wilcoworld email...
  11. For Skian-- You're right: there are no new songs, but there are at least two tracks that are previously unavailable versions of songs (Unlikely Japan is almost two minutes longer than the only other available version and At My Window Sad and Lonely Jeff Tweedy Solo Version is a completely different recording than what it is listed as being and something that hasn't been available until this set). Also, earlier in the thread a couple of us were wondering if the Cars Can't Escape on AMF is not what was listed in the liner notes or released as a Wilcoworld download--it sounds like a completely di
  12. A heads-up for people who are on the fence or disappointed about buying AMF because they have all of the material already: at least two tracks are not what they're listed as. In the liner notes for AMF, there's info about where each track originally appeared, as in what single or soundtrack or compilation it's from. In at least two cases (possibly three), though, the AMF track is a different version of the track than what's listed. I found this out when I imported the CDs into iTunes and noticed the times on some of the AMF tracks were pretty different than the originals that I already had in
  13. Such a good show! I can't decide if this one was the best I've seen or if the last Detroit show was better...I think if they'd played A Shot in the Arm and One Sunday Morning, it would easily have killed Detroit. And my head would have exploded.
  14. The tracks are "Diamond Light" parts 1 & 2, for what it's worth. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. There is a 10" single for sale here at the Detroit show, though! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
