...on his site? I'm guessing cuz of licensing issues or whatever the right term is.But darnit I want that album!
He also did another album I noticed on iTunes with Jad Fair.
What's keeping you from buying the album? It's legit -- it's just that it was released on Jad's label rather than Daniel's (and currently is available via Jagjaguwar Records). The other Jad/Dan album from JagJag, "The Lucky Sperms", is not nearly as good as "It's Spooky", in my opinion, apart from their take on the Rolling Stones
' "Ruby Tuesday" (which was awe-inspiring live at the album release gig, BTW!)
Dan also guests on an album by another Jagjaguwar artist, Okkervil River
, as does Orange Mothers
leader Ethan Azarian
-- who with myself and Daniel formed the supergroup JLA
(Johnston - Lieck - Azarian). You can hear some JLA
demos at www.imeem.com/middlenamewayne/
. If I may suggest a few:Plan 9 From "Let It Be" [D. Johnston]
