Happy Good Friday to all you fine people, and it is a good Friday. How good? Well, I’ve never had anyone upload a Youtube video especially for me before — until now. So God bless my fellow Ryan Adams fan Jeff Mullins for taking the trouble, and doing a bang-up job to boot. It’s all one take and 21 minutes of him playing really good versions of a half-dozen Ryan Adams/Whiskeytown songs; and I’m delighted to report that the playlist includes two of my favorite “lost” Ryan songs from the fall of ’99, “Oh My Sweet Valentine” and “Hey There, Mrs. Lovely” (see Chapter 11 of “Losering” for some babble about both).
Check it out. Well done, Jeff, and thank you!
