I did not know that Johnny Cash and Joni Mitchell sang a duet of "Long Black Veil", in 1969, for the debut program of Johnny Cash's TV show.

the dismemberment plan, live

Following my posting of the Dismemberment Plan's "Following Through" as Song Project #19, nyctaper thought it was a good idea to post the Plan live. It's 1999, at the Knitting Factory, just after their great album Emergency & I, but just before they hit big, so they were third on the bill (after Burning Airlines and the Promise Ring). The sound is very good. Thanks, nyctaper.

I don't read many album reviews, so I don't know if it's been generally noted how clearly "Down in the Basement" is Sloan writing a Dylan song.

Going to see Sloan at Bowery tonight (Hey Bill!). First time I'll have seen them since Between the Bridges, and the first time Velma and I will have seen them together.
