I've just checked this out. Quite unmodish stuff, this - has it been fashionable at any point since punk? It's nice and rich, though - it'll take a bit of work, but I think I could get into it.

On first listen 'Dixie' is the obvious standout. Beautiful tune and lyric, great performances especially the drumming - there's something new happening every second or so, just smashing.

they've been fashionable in indie rock since at least the mid-90s (cf Mercury Rev etc)

Helm does sort of sing differently/strangely on the studio take of "Dixie" doesn't he? Think I prefer the live versions more as well.

The correct answer.

My CD copy of this album (2000 reissue) has a bunch of eminently lame and forgettable alternate takes tacked on the end. A classic example of too many extras doing a disservice to the original.

yeah Get Up Jake is sweeeet. The alt of Whispering Pines is kinda nice too, with Richard's studio chatter. Glad that someone voted for When You Awake -- the sleeper of the album, imo.
