Chicago Songs need to be released already. Easily some of his best material he ever wrote.

The date says 9/17/03, but unless my memory has been completely fucked by marijuana, the poetry tour was in the autumn of 2004?

10-10-2010, 07:49 PM
Wow, thanks for this

10-10-2010, 09:06 PM
yeah this should be 2004. but fuck all mighty is this fantastic. this is the direction he should have gone in, rather than tfe.

10-10-2010, 09:07 PM
He did "go in this direction," the songs just weren't released. TFE is the sequel to this period.

10-10-2010, 09:12 PM
i meant it should have been released instead of TFE. he should have put more energy into putting this material out to a larger audience.

Yea these 4 solo songs sound amazing. Really into the version of Bobby Franks and the fingerpicking on El-A-Noy is intense.

Did he ever play his 1930s National for any of the Chicago songs? I know he got one around 98 and these songs would be perfect for showcasing it.

10-12-2010, 04:36 PM
yeah this should be 2004.

Well then I don't know. The poetry book definitely came out in autumn 2004. Was he reading those poems a whole year before the poetry tour?

10-13-2010, 03:16 AM
yes. it was a one-off show at the art institute...i'm sure the thread is around here if it can be found. it was also the day after he announced the zwan breakup on fox chicago (~3 months after they actually broke up)

unfortunately there are only like three recordings from the poetry tour, and one is that stupid integral naked thing and the other one (10/25) is barely circulating
