    Here is a video where J is talking about the tune (around 1:37)

    I’ve been waiting on this one. Pre-ordered a week or so ago 🙂

    I love John Denver!

    J Mascis’ guitar room is sick! I definitely have to stop by for a visit one day!

    I can’t get over how good this cut is! You can tell by listening to it that J really prefers to record all the instruments himself as opposed to having other players aboard.

    I love John Denver too! – I would have thought hearing about this project a while back he might do Vincent or Annie’s song after doing the ‘several shades…’ album.

    Glad he didn’t because this rocks!(Could not agree more with King Tubby )
    Even his vocal is “slighty better” – I can’t phrase that right, slighty different – I guess on covers it has been before, Because he didn’t write for himself.

    J should bang out a covers album, I’m sure it would not take him a day.

    @Obseqio
    That was a insane view of his room, I’ve seen pictures but….WOW – He should be glad I’m 3 or 4 thousand miles away : )

    Quite looking forward to My Morning Jacket – Leaving on a Jet Plane, Although I doubt it will have the wall of noise J’s has 🙂 & the Evan Dando track
