15th Anniversary of Too Far To Care

File this under, "OMG!" The Old 97′s are going tour in celebration of the 15th anniversary of the release of their seminal album Too Far To Care, one of my Top 5 albums of all time. Each show will feature the album performed live, start to finish, with a second set of even more old favorites. (!!!) TFTC will also be released on vinyl. I'm so exited!!!

Old 97's - Niteclub.mp3
Buy: Too Far to Care (1997)

Rancher Brothers - W. TX Teardrops
From: Too Far to Demo (1996?)

The Ranchero Brothers are Old 97's lead singer Rhett Miller and bassist Murry Hammond. A while ago Murry uploaded a bunch the Too Far to Care demos to the 97's web site. It's not posted anymore, but there is a "Live at Cicero's, St. Louis, MO, 4-19-96" download which is probably damn close to the demo sessions. I'm downloading it pronto and will report back...

The funny thing is that it took nearly a month for someone to point out my typos!
