This should be awesome although I was hoping it was a collaboration album with original material. I've only heard one Townes song (Nothing) and I dig it. A tour with all these guys would be killer.

Here's a vid of Wino doing "Nothing"

Wino and Conny Ochs also covered 'Rust' on their tour, and 'Highway Kind' on their album.

I knew they were going to do a Townes tribute disc, so I'm not disappointed at all because Townes is awesome (seriously just buy the 4 disc 'Texas Troubadour' box set - it's awesome and cheap), but I did think they'd play the songs together, rather than recording effectively three solo songs each.

But holy shit do I want them to do a three-way in-the-round tour of this stuff and their solo stuff.

'Adrift', 'The Wake', 'A Grave Is a Grim Horse'... all such great albums.

Definitely. I would love to see that.

Glad to see someone who shares my love for those albums.
