Kramer always did right by Daniel and he has my complete respect. I especially look forward to hearing Daniel Smith and Sufjan Stevens' "Worried Shoes".

Thanx for the info pjc. This looks like a great idea to me.
Keeping discussion of Daniel's music in the air to coincide with the DVD release, which now we know will be by October...

I can't wait to hear what Mad Francis, Jeffrey Lewis, The Sutcliffe's and Kimya Dawson do with these tunes, plus it's always nice to have Jad and Kramer hang out.

Well timed. Looking forward to it. Yippee.

If someone does another covers album, please have The Martial Arts on it.
