Welcome back to part 2 of Todd Snider's 2003 live album "Near Truths and Hotel Rooms"!
I yammered on long enough about Mr. Snider's talents last night. Hop on board...here's the rest of one of the best live albums available!
"Easy Money" - A love song about a couple of grifters...and about a lot of folks out there.
"Talking Seattle Grunge Rock Blues" - The song that made Snider famous. Freshly lifted by Todd from Bob Dylan...who as everyone knows, lifted it from Woody Guthrie!
"Long Year" - 'it's been a long year, how did I get here?' ....good question.
"Typing gibberish" - Story and introduction to 'Side Show Blues'.
"Side Show Blues" - 'It's a circus out here Mama, your baby's got these side show blues!'
"Any requests" - A little chat with the audience.
"I Spoke as a Child" - 'I wish I could remember what I said.'
"Doublewide Blues" - A slice of life portrait if Norman Rockwell had lived in Frasier, Tennessee.
"Letter from Australia" - Story about the reaction to 'Broke' by one fan and introduction to the Australian version of same.
"Broke" - Ah, the things you can learn behind bars.
I hope you enjoyed it all and are Todd Snider fans like you should have been all along.
Talk to you soon.
