Jayhawks part 2

Posted by Andy Cahn On July - 6 - 2009

Part 2 of The Jayhawks podcast begins with the legend of how they were signed to Rick Rubin’s (Def) American Records. Gary Louris and Mark Olson look back on the “Hollywood Town Hall” sessions, the initial reaction when it was released in 1992, and how it felt to be alt-country in the time of grunge (aka “the real music.”) Joe Henry also adds his memories of when the Jayhawks toured as his backup band.
