Just for the record, I went with Having A Hard Time for the title of the song in question because Wilcoworld actually posted the setlist for the first Largo show on Jan. 5 before I finished my recap/setlist post here. I originally called it "It's Nothing New" as well, but changed it in deference to what Wilcoworld had. I hear that someone may have seen a song listed as "Nothing New" on a physical setlist at the show, which is almost certainly where the confusion stems from. So until Jeff clarifies it or the song is released with one title or the other, we won't know for sure.

 

Either way, I wouldn't completely trust Setlist.fm on anything. It's a nice resource to have, but I'm sure there are also errors on there as with any Wiki-type database that anyone can contribute to or change. Very occasionally Wilcoworld has an error, too. Nobody's perfect, but I would tend to defer to Wilcoworld on song titles unless Jeff himself clarifies it either during a show, on the Tweedy Show or on his Substack.

 

For what it's worth, I asked Cash on Thursday what that song was called and he said, "'Having a Hard Time' is the only title I've ever heard."

Hi Friends - I have finally updated the Tweedy Show mp3 archive (over 2,000 song files). All files have been meticulously logged and tagged so they can be easily filtered, searched, and sorted - in iT

I appreciate the accolades, but seriously, all the real credit goes to @u2roolz. The two or three times I filled in for him really showed me how truly dedicated he’s been to this project. It’s fairly

After reading through these last few posts, I'm a little confused about why there's confusion about the name of the new song. But for what it's worth, on the spreadsheet I listed the new song from this Tweedy Show (#218) as "Evicted From Your Heart" because a) he repeats the line over and over in the song, b) both @u2roolz and @bböp listed it as such in their lists, and c) that's what it says on Wilcoworld.net.

My post wasn't about that song. It was about the song that could be named either "Nothing New" or "Having a Hard Time." Both phrases are part of its refrain.

Oh, ok. Then I guess I just don't know which song you're talking about.

Hi. I'm not seeing Episode 218 on Stuffinourhouse.  Is it posted somewhere else?  Thank you


If it’s no longer on the Instagram it’ll likely be posted by Susie to YouTube at some point down the line. Might take a little bit.

For now some tidbits: Jeff showed the vinyl artwork for Cousin and also mentioned that he, Cate Le Bon, Spencer & Sammy have recorded something (an album, I believe he said.). He might’ve mentioned that they used a secret name. Total episode was about 70 minutes.

Synchronicity. Have had that song in my head for the last couple of months and have watched it here ( https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m001b953 ) on and off multiple times since. Really like that kind of harmony guitar sound later on in the track.

She must have started recording slightly late because the first song of the set was the new one, Cry Baby Cry. And they did play A Robin Or A Wren in its entirety. Just FYI.
