Fluids and Rest and Downloading

The real tough thing about my chicken pox-related quarantine (another week to go. Liquor and cash please, no flowers) is going to be not killing the time buying things off eBay. And elsewhere.

I discovered Gillian Welch's site has a facility to download songs for 0.99 US cents a go. Viva PayPal. Viva sick pay. Three minutes later and these were on my iTunes:

"I'm Not Afraid to Die" with Willie Nelson recorded for the film The Journeyman
"One Monkey" recorded live 08/16/03 Galway, Ireland
"In Tall Buildings" from “A Tribute to John Hartford: Live From Mountain Stage”
"Wind and Rain" from the soundtrack album "Songcatcher"
"Summer Evening" from "Going Driftless: An Artist’s Tribu To Greg Brown"
"Dusty Boxcar Wall" - Live in London, England on 5/23/96
"Fifty Miles Of Elbow Room"
James Alan Shelton (with Gillian Welch) from the album "Song For Greta"
"Black Star" - Live in Minneapolis, MN on 9/24/2004

They also have Beulah Land from Avalon Blues: A Tribute to the Music of Mississippi John Hurt but I've already got that. Plus all the studio albums and the Revelator Collection DVD .Fifty Miles is the Iris Dement song.

All truly lovely, but nothing like a whole new album would be ...
