Josh Ritter – The Animal Years (Deluxe)

Josh Ritter’s brilliant album “The Animal Years” has been drastically improved.

The updated version of the CD and the VINYL now include a BONUS disc, featuring Josh performing the entire album SOLO ACOUSTIC, plus 4 b-side recordings (Blame it on the Tetons, Harbortown, Peter Killed the Dragon, and Monster Ballads [early version]), and two videos. The included acoustic album was recorded  in 2008, and these recordings have not been previously released!

For the CD edition, both discs are housed in a tri-fold cardboard sleeve (like the ones made for the Hello Starling and Golden Age Of Radio reissues), with NEW artwork and fresh liner notes by Tom Ricks (Pulitzer Prize winning journalist).

The LP version of The Animal Years includes the bonus CD in a full-color sleeve, inside the LP (same as The Hello Starling re-issue).

If you want to sample Josh’s re-take on his own songs www.joshritter.com is offering the classic “Wolves” – the solo acoustic version – as a free mp3.  Click here to get yours.

The Animal Years Deluxe is scheduled for a 14th February release.

2010 Top 30 New and Old #25

Teenage Fanclub after several years in the “shadows” stepped back into the limelight to release a great album called “Shadows” from which this is my favourite track.

“When I Still Have Thee” – Teenage Fanclub

From the western isles to the tasman sea
There’s a world of men and machinery
But the birds still sing and the sun shines free
No, I don’t need much when I still have thee

Well, the rolling stones wrote a song for me
It’s a minor song in a major key
But the stars still shine, the museums free
No, I don’t need much when I still have thee

It’s a modern hymn for the you and me
For the go between and the red army
Long as I still breathe and the air’s still free
No, I don’t need much when I still have thee

But the birds still sing and the sun shines free
No, I don’t need much when I still have thee
For the rolling stones and the red army
No, I don’t need much when I still have thee

Josh Ritter’s “In The Dark Live At Vicar Street” was released back in 2006, somehow I missed it but since buying the combined CD/DVD set back in February it has been a regular play.

As a bonus here is a live take on the brilliant “Girl In The War”

“Girl In The War” (Live) – Josh Ritter

Peter said to Paul you know all those words we wrote
Are just the rules of the game and the rules are the first to go
But now talking to God is Laurel begging
Hardy for a gun I got a girl in the war man I wonder what it is we done

Paul said to Peter you got to rock yourself a little harder
Pretend the dove from above is a dragon and your feet are on fire
But I got a girl in the war
Paul the only thing I know to do
Is turn up the music and pray that she makes it through

Because the keys to the Kingdom got lost inside the Kingdom
And the angels fly around in there but we can’t see them I got a girl in the war
Paul I know that they can here me yell
If they can’t find a way to help her they can go to Hell
If they can’t find a way to help her they can go to Hell

Paul said to Peter you got to rock yourself a little harder
Pretend the dove from above is a dragon and your feet are on fire
But I got a girl in the war Paul her eyes are like champagne
They sparkle bubble over and in the morning all you got is rain
They sparkle bubble over and in the morning all you got is rain
They sparkle bubble over and in the morning all you got is rain
