Ryan Adams III/IV Tracks From The Past

Yes, we love Ryan Adams. And yes, we've been obsessing over the lovely III/IV for the past few months. So it was that we were perusing videos on the internets and discovered some "vintage" footage from 2006 featuring some tunes off of his most recent record. While it's somewhat incredible that it took four years for studio versions of the tunes to see the light of day, it's not exactly surprising. The notoriously prolific Adams has always had to self edit, and apparently more than a few songs have had to do their time in the waiting queue. Regardless, we think you'll enjoy these live versions of "Breakdown Into The Resolve" and "Typecast" quite a bit - certainly not a bad way to spend your rainy Friday afternoon.
