the godfather
sopranos f-word update

seeger sessions for real

My real copy arrived today, so I can dispense with the "if I had it" trope of my earlier post and just talk about the album. I actually don't have a whole lot more to add. It's a DualDisc, with one side being a DVD with PCM audio, a couple of bonus tracks (including "Buffalo Gals"), and a half-hour documentary about the making of the album that is mostly just music (the video for "Oh Mary Don't You Weep" that I linked to earlier is in this film, for instance). Everybody seems to be having a grand old time, which is a good sign for the upcoming tour. If I had to add anything to be original thoughts, I'd say that the gospel tunes are better than the more folky ones. If nothing else, this album has more zip than Devils and Dust or The Ghost of Tom Joad.
