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.

Pearl Jam Ten Code – Part 5

Posted by Andy Cahn On March - 20 - 2009

Today’s Pearl Jam Ten Code episode goes back to the 1991 Eddie Vedder interview and his thoughts on stage diving and other antics he frequently performed on stage back then.  It’s interesting to hear his perspective back then on how he didn’t plan to keep doing those things once fans became more familiar with their songs.   We then launch into a high energy live performance from the TEN tour of “State of Love and Trust” from the 1992 “Drop in the Park” show featured in the 4-LP Vinyl Edition release.
