Re: Go Go Boots and Secret To A Happy Ending Out Feb 15

This probably isn't much help, but pretty sure you can still get it as a Bonus Track when/if you download TBTD from iTunes.....but only if you buy the whole album, and surely anyone on TDD already has it in some format or another.

Re: Drive-By Truckers "Used To Be A Cop"

this is like the song wig was supposed to be...it's among my least favourites on the big to-do (still like it a lot though), this on the other hand...


Agree 110% on both counts. Shonna's bass is up front and badass and flat-out driving the song. Good stuff.

Re: New Freed DBT art for sale

I think it is a reasonable price for the original piece. He will also do a commissioned portrait in that same price range. I emailed Jyl in late '04 about a commissioned piece I was thinking about having done for my business partner's birthday. While I'm way into Wes' style, before I pulled the tri...

Re: Value of DBT "stuff"

Not sure what to think of the I Do Believe single being auctioned on eBay, sounds like it fell into the wrong hands and that person chose to profit from it. Personally, I wouldn't consider them a "fan". Agree - was wondering that myself. I was hoping to "keep it in the family," ...

Value of DBT "stuff"

I was bidding a few days ago on eBay for a promo CD of "I Do Believe" (first track on upcoming GGB). I lost out after bidding $20 and going about my day. Was hoping I'd get it, but was also happy that another fan (hopefully) was snagging a little piece of DBT history for their own personal...

Re: Richmond VA Oct 29-30

Phew. Just now recovered. Saturday night was certainly the best all-around DBT show I've seen in years. It had it all: almost 3 hours long, two great new tunes, the always-appreciated Patterson-Cooley laughing/interplay, Cooley with a big 'ol buzz, Neff smiling and into it (and on fire) and tossing ...
