A few tunes from a great show he did last April. Eddie’s solo shows are great. He’s one of the few real rock stars left in this world–one of the few guys who can belt out a tune, make money with music, fill stadiums, and still stay true to his roots. If you didn’t buy Into The Wild, you should. It’s good. If you haven’t been blessed with the chance to see him live, you must.

A few tastes, then a zip.

Walking the Cow (Daniel Johnston)
Millworker (James Taylor)
You Got To Hide Your Love Away (Lennon, McCartney)
Trouble (Cat Stevens)
If You Want to Sing Out (Cat Stevens)
Forever Young
Society (with Jerry Hannan)
Growin’ Up (Bruce Springsteen)
No More
Arc (a.k.a. Mookie, the classic Pearl Jam B-Side)
Hard Sun with Liam Finn, EJ and Jerry Hannan-(Gordon Peterson cover)

    first, thanks. ed’s unusual no taping policy on the solo tour makes these hard to come by.

    but… i’m not aware of any b-side called mookie. mookie blaylock was the band’s original name. when i asked him about the name change, he said it was so they wouldn’t be perceived as joke-y or goofy a-la royal crescent mob (he named them specifically, this was in 1991.) the only b-sides that might’ve been recorded during that era were wash, brother, just a girl, alone, and/or the beatles’ i’ve got a feeling. and ten’s intro & outro music master/slave. (dirty frank, yellow ledbetter and breath were written circa ten, but not recorded til after)

    also, the roskilde incident was in 2000, rather than 03.

    and forever young is a dylan cover.

    but mostly thanks.

    (i feel like the comic book guy in the simpsons knowing this shit.)

    ps. if pearl jam didn’t historically spoil the northeast, i’d call abe a bastard for getting to see 3 of these shows. and someone needs to have a word with ed about not playing into the wild’s best song (long nights) even once. ok i’m done.

    Thx for posting the MP3s. I just saw Eddie in Boston on Friday and he did a pretty similar set though with more songs from Into the Wild. Overall one of the best shows I’ve ever seen.

    I see you removed the zip file– was that the whole show? Anyway you could mail me a copy?

    I have a copy of the 4/7/08 Berkeley show I can trade if someone can get me a copy of the song Eddie sang about Santa Cruz on 4/6 in Santa Cruz or on 4/8 n Berkeley. Amazing shows!!!
