    Amazing how vast the musical world is. I have never heard of this guy at all. But, by those posting I am sorry to hear of his passing.

    I enjoyed listening to the live album. It's better than I thought it might be. During some of the songs, you can tell he sounds older, but that's to be expected. He still sounds great as he's coming full circle with his life. "Funeral Home" is my favorite track.

    I'm glad to know there are still copies available for pre-order. I just ordered mine. Now if only 1990 and Artistic Vice would be reissued. Artistic Vice is my favorite so far of all his albums, but there are a few that I haven't heard yet. I enjoy my cassette copy of Artistic Vice that I received for free when I worked for Tower Records back in the day. Nobody knew who he was except me. I had no idea beforehand or while I was listening that he had schizophrenia. He just sounds like a sincere young man working through his challenges.
