So Amazon today released clips from the entirety of Blame It On Gravity, and they give a good, if incomplete, impression of an album that, over the past two weeks, has planted more little sonic earwigs in my brain than any other Old 97’s CD. It’s that good. Enjoy. And order that deluxe CD/DVD combo version too, while you’re over there listening.
Finally, over on the Hitchhiking list, Jack Epsteen posted an outstanding review of Rhett Miller’s April 12 show at LA’s Largo, during which Rhett announced that both the 4/11 and 4/12 shows were being taped for a possible live release, which he called The Interpreter Live at Largo. And man, I’m down with anything that gets “Bonfire” out on a CD ASAFP. Cheers – frank
