    Ah, a boy and his dog. :angel:

    Guy E., I do the same things with my CD-R comps, and needledrops especially. For the needledrops I scan the front and back covers and sometimes do lyric booklets, if I'm feeling particularly crazy. I have to say, your Hard Nose cover looks a lot more inviting than the "official" one. If anything has kept me away from that album all these years, it's that cover!

    thats a mighty big dog, as you can see from my fresh new avatar (Iron & Wine took me off the payroll:laugh: )...my real dog is a whole lot smaller...has the same ego as this one in the drawing no doubt.

    Is that a Scotty? How appropriately Celtic.

    I remember reading a story by Jame Thurber in which someone was commenting on "tough" dogs. They were dismissing Thurber's Scottie, when a local tough offered, "Don't underestimate him, I saw a Scottie take the tonsils out of an Airedale once." I don't condone dog fighting but I got a laugh from that. It does describe Scotties they have a lot of heart. The ones I've known were natural comedians also.


    I did like the cover painting from Iron & Wine but nothing beats the real thing. Maybe you should pose with two Scotties in front of a Manor House for your next release.

    he is indeed a scottish terrier and yea, i'm sure i'm sure he could wrestle with an Airedale without even a thought. shocking how "tough" he can act around some dogs...still he's pretty loveable and always friendly, but he is a scotty and i'm always very cautious til we've not gotten acquainted with another dog. takes him a second to warm up to most.

    mostly he loves every dog and very playful...but this guy must always be top dog around any dog and he's willing to fight any male for that status, other than that he's a total sleepy mushy pet....oh and he pretty much stops traffic whenever I walk him. amazing how much attention this dog actually brings my way....:laugh:

    I promise not to digress after this, but I remember when my English Bull Terrier was a puppy. He was playing with a Scotty pup, the Scotty would take a long run at my dog and head butt his side, rolling him right over. It was funny to see, and they loved playing together.

    Now back to VAN.

    Thanks. I agree. If anyone has info about what songs were recorded where and when, that would be great. Haven't had a chance to download the files from itunes yet, but hopefully I will do just that any day and revisit these recordings for this weekend. Must confess, my initial reaction upon listening to the album, in the late 80's, was thinking why so many cover songs. And I was uncertain about the stylings of the more epic Van songs. At that time, I didn't love Jazz like I do now, though, so I'm anxious to relive the concert experience of ITLTSN. Ain't Nuthin' and Warm Love hit me hard though, as did I Believe To My Soul -two of the "covers," of course :p - and Here Comes the Night was nice as well.

    Yes, sort of the sleeper track of the album. He sneaks it in but I like the version. I don't think he does it in concert too often.

    We've all been recovering from those Guy Fawkes' Day celebrations we went to the night before.

    Oh boy, I've resorted to history jokes, it needs to be 5 o'clock soon.

    I have a badly-bred, over-size Cairn who, at his fighting weight, is a solid 28 lbs. I'd put him up against any size or kind of vermin on the planet. he's all heart and teeth. I love terriers. They're so stubborn it's sometimes hard to see how smart they are, but if you know how to train them they are great dogs.

    Back to Van. It's late here and right now I'm listening to Magic Time on my trusty Senn 580s. It is a fabulous recording, as far as I can tell.

    I don't know either but I'm sure it couyld be found out.

    The Wild Night boot from 5/21/73 is a fans favorite, kind of the unmixed rough versions from this era's live takes. It also totally smokes.

    Allegedly Van/Michelle's wedding night was ruined because Brian Kennedy, who was hiding in the closet, kept repeating every word Van said.

    i'm just sayin...it seems like Linden Arden stole the highlights on this albums discussion.....does it comfort you all this lack of discussion on the live one?....it's so sleepy in here, Come Here My Love lets go back to my cul de sac to see if i can figure out who was that masked man?

    I'm ready for Veedon when you all are:whistle:

    Me neither. Tri-fold? Sheesh, they spared no expense. Jeff, what's the inside look like? Just the standard shots of the musicians?
