They weren't bootlegs.  I'm talking about the official 'Early Recordings' double-CD and 'Yip' which I bought from the official merchandise stand at a Daniel show.  It is not the homestead CD but a CD-R.  The idea that any future box set/reissue will these gaps pisses me off incredibly.  I could do edits myself, but why should I have to?

I was gutted to find my copies of the 'Early Recordings' and 'Yip/Jump Music' (CD-r bought from live show) have really irritating gaps of two seconds between every track, which ruin the flow of the orginal tapes.  This might seem minor to some people but I felt a bit ripped off when I bought them, knowing that I had done a better job when I originally made my CDs with mp3s from Emusic using Nero.

If the tapes ever get a proper release, can anyone make the effort to prevent this from happening?  It's like someone sticking a big gap before 'With A Little Help From My Friends'.

Sounds like 'Tommorrow's Child' which is credited to Ron English with Dan on vox.

The CD is dated 1994 but it contains Impossible Love which wasn't released until Rejected Unknown came out.  Is it the same version or is it in any way different?

Another Goldwave question: does anyone know how to configure it so it doesnt pick up computer noise like clicks, pings from Soulseek etc?

Since he wrote songs for both Micheal Bolton and Cher , itīs impossible to me not to imagine.

RAY, WHAT YOUR HAIRCUT LOOKS LIKE?HuhHuhHuh Tongue  Tongue  Tongue  cheesy  cheesy  cheesy

Perhaps he sports the look of his close personal friend, Michael 'Two Haircuts' Bolton.....   a man who, coincidently, deserves to die.

Would it be fair to blame Marky Mark, The Outhere Brothers and Jeff Buckley on Ray too?  Let's go for yes.

Ray, I think I speak of everyone when I say "You sad, friendless bastard".

14  General Discussion / Fan Forums / Teenage Fanclub & Jad Fair: Daniel Johnston covers on: November 09, 2003, 06:11:55 PM
From RADAR magazine:

"Are you satisfied with Teenage Fanclub's status as a band and by the legacy you've left over the last 14 years or so?

Raymond McGinley  (TFC): Well, 14 years ago when we were recording A Catholic Education, I don't think any of us thought that at some point someone might ask us about our "legacy!" We were just a bunch of guys who wanted to do something here and now, or rather, there and then. At that point the feeling of making that record gave us satisfaction, and doing stuff "here and now" is what still gives us satisfaction – like when we were recording some Daniel Johnston songs with Jad Fair in Glasgow last week. I watched a cheesy documentary looking back at Blur and Oasis in the nineties on TV last night, which was a lesson in the dangers of pretentious retrospective analysis. "

I heard 'Summer Time' from 'It's Spooky' on Lee & Herring's radio show when I was 13 and it scared the **** out of me...I taped all their shows but that night rewound the tape and recorded the remainder of the show over that bit, so I never caught the name nor did I want to hear it again.  When I saw L&H live in Carlisle a year and a half later, they played many of the unusual songs they had played on the Radio One show before they came on stage, and oh **** there it was, "Nooo ooone understaaands youuuu...."

I had definately seen the name about various places, and had noticed copies of 'Fun' and 'It's Spooky' in shops but never took it in, just knew that he must be some american indie guy.  I got hold of Wilco's 'A Shot In The Arm' single and noticed 'True Love Will Find You In The End' was written by Daniel Johnston, which was got buried at the back of my mind, as did noticing the same thing about The Pastels 'Speeding Motorcycle'.  Anyway, I heard good things about Half Japanese and I assumed Jad and Daniel were members (for some reason) so I downloaded a bunch of Half-Japanese songs and thought they were pretty good.  It wasn't until I found a messageboard discussion thread about unrequited love songs that I heard Daniel: someone recommended 'Laurie' as being the ultimate song of this kind.  I downloaded it and was blown away, it sounded like some mad kind of murder ballad with great lyrics but I never thought it would be a true story.

I started downloading Daniel's songs according to the titles I liked, stuff like 'Despair Came Knocking' and 'Impossible Love' and thought they we're exactly what I was looking for, and then I heard 'I Remember Painfully' which was almost too much.  It reminded me of Jonathan Richman but taking that method of writing much further and it sounded scary and very, very real.  I had to get hold of some CDs and do some research.  It was only then that I found out about Daniel's illness and it sort of put the urgency of something like 'I Remember Painfully' in perspective a bit more.  I read every online article I could find and bought what few CDs I could get in Scotland.  I got a CD burner for the main purpose of downloading the tapes (legally) off Emusic and went on a mini-crusade to get all the CDs that I could.  The rest is history, I've raved about Daniel's music to most people I know and managed to get some others listening too - you can imagine my jealousy at my friend Alex finding a vinyl copy of 'Artistic Vice' in the only record shop in Dumfries...

At no point in the last couple of years has my appreciation, fascination and enthusiasm for Daniel calmed down and I still think he might be the best ever.....
