from the early stuff, I would say "Songs of Pain", Yip/jump", "continued story"
If you like sad songs: "1990"
And for the morecent album: "Fun" "Why Me?" and "Rejected unknow"
but I don't think you can make a bad choice with him.

I hope daniel will get better soon.

I can't understand why "someone" planned him to tour if he don't want.
If not, i would not have been so pleased to see him friday and now so disapointed.

  grin Yes I'll go even if it's not my birthday. They're not so much occasion to see him in France and I will not miss him (At least I will try to because it's very early)

 And of course we could meet too  smiley

recording etiquette was pretty amazing and really showed me how talented daniel really was at the time (around '85).  i had gone over to hang out with him in his tiny dorm room that was filled with records, tapes, comic books, and drawings.  i picked up his nylon string guitar and started playing around and daniel picked up this book--some '50s self-help-style book that he got out of a dumpster--and started reading out of it.  after about 10 seconds he turned on his jambox and told me to start over.  i didn't know what the words would be, and he didn't know exactly what i would play, but he followed me perfectly as he read the words straight out of the book, turning them into a song spontaneously.  you can hear him mispronounce the word "contagious" the first time, then get it right the second time.  at the end of song you can hear me laughing in amazement at how perfectly we ended the song.  the whole process of composing and recording took maybe five minutes.    i've been in bands with a lot of talented people, but i've never known anyone with such a grasp of melody.  the guy has trunks full of melodies!

It's you on the record? Well, bravo, the guitar part with its happy-jazz feeling is great.
And knowing that's it's almost improvised made it even more remarkable. A great and funny song in a great album.
PS: I have the vinyl version edited by homestead in 1991 with "Etiquette" inside.

Daniel will play in St-Malô, France in "La route du rock" (12/08). I'm very exited cause i go in these festival every year since 1996 and it's the first time he play here (and only the second time i'll will see Daniel live).
And the line-up contain also so far: Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Weding Present, Polyphonic Spree and Mercury Rev.  grin
