    1. Re: 09. I was actually surprised it was on VLB instead of Days in the Wake.
      At the same time, I know it's the song before "Old Jerusalem", which is on VLB, so I guess my thoughts of this song had not converged.

    *Notes:
    2. A new album of old songs re-recorded, just Will and his acoustic guitar. So quite different than So Here's My Plan, and which I think explains why it's billed to "Will Oldham" rather than some version of "Bonnie 'Prince' Billy".

    3. The second half of this is pretty much one of the tracks of Dilloway's Siena EP (maybe "Siena 1"?), but with someone making some vocal noises over it.

    6. No vocalist was credited on this song, so I've assumed it's all computer singing. (Both Jaxx, Felix and Simon are credited on other songs on the album.)

    9. Playing on the fact that "Telluride" also sounds like "'Til you're right". Someday, there will be songs about Nunavut.

    T. This is a sketch of a bootleg remix, only 85 seconds long, limited to only part of the song because it's all I could fit on the hard drive at the time. (I was using a computer at UST for a low-credit "electronic music production" class, or something like that, with a lot of MIDI and protools.) I'd love to do the whole thing with unlimited space, but now it's almost two decades ago and I wouldn't know how. I think it was one of the best pop-remix ideas I had.
