    I'm not a country fan but Jeff's Country Rock Pop is the best. Not a better country rock songwriter .. ever. Johnny Cash has a great voice but his best song Ring of Fire wasn't written by him - written by his wife - and why is it that every song he does "I walk the something or other". Just look at Jeff's work with Wilco.. amazing. And he has compassion for the depressed as he's been through it..

    Even when I'm wide awake
    I keep turning back one page
    I can't find the plot
    And something else is taking shape
    I know what it's like
    To keep losing your place
    My shadow stays
    Even when I'm miles away
    Waiting outside
    I know what it's like

        What do you play when you have a solid mahogany signature Martin? The old Martin that probably inspired it.

          I'm obsessed with this song now. One of those performances that beats out the album version and is so much catchier.

                                    I thought those were his sons. I recognized the son on drums but wasn't sure about the fellow singing backup. Jeff Tweedy .....great as always !
