Just a few more days until the release of the 1st single off of Free So Free. City Slang is releasing a 7" of Everybody Lets Me Down on the 30th. This is a European release only so check your fav import site to pick it up. MP3 club on CitySlang should be adding a J tune soon, looking forward to the video of the new single as well <img>
The album will be released in Europe on October 14th.
Ultimatum is releasing Free So Free in North America on October 8th. Great package deal available, both the CD & Vinyl for only 25 bucks <img>
You can download two songs off of Free So Free on the Ultimatum site as well, Tell The Truth & Freedom <img>
If you just can’t wait, you can pick Free So Free up off a Japanese HMV site where it’s already available… HMV Japan

"No Way", one of the Japan-bonus-tracks, is also the B-side of the "Everybody Lets Me Down" 7".
The backcover pic for that single is from the "Where’d You Go" vid, I think.
Looks like there’s also the possibility that Cobra Verde (by the way, the Klaus Kinski film of the same name was on german TV yesterday – didn’t see it, though) will be J’s backing band for part of his set, too, so it might be not a 100% acoustic affair.
That’s all, folks – and remember: "I don’t wanna be wrong, cause wrong is not the thing to be"…September 27, 2002 at 11:04 am #52275
Thanks for the info! No doubt a lot of people out there will be very thrilled to hear that the shows may not be all acoustic, always cool to have sonic blasts happening <img>

folks- lemme just say that i paid an arm and 2 legs for the advance copy of the album- i cant begin to describe it. i wont give away surprises but lemme just say that the song someone siad is probably the most amazing shit i have ever heard. imagine the best aspects of cant we move this, out there and the infamous puke and cry jam session from the hand it over tour— combine that and that describes the soaring 2 minute guitar solo. and hearing everybody lets me down not acoustic is a treat. i’ve seen him 5 times acoustic this year- literally from new orleans to northhampton and seeing him 2 nites again next week- but i’m telling you people this shit is sick. his drumming is out of control. bobbin, freedom, someone said and lets me down are amazing, even the slow jams are tight. how it’s gotta be is one of the best slow jams ever. enough said— see you in cambridge and northhamptonOctober 1, 2002 at 11:51 pm #52280
My favorite minute or so of the entire album has got to be between 2:35 and 3:35 of "Set us Free". The sections after the solo are just amazing – definitely the most danceable part of the whole album.
and no show in nashville.. <sob>
