Nice, Thanks again!

That Intro cover sounds exactly like the beginning to R.I.P.V.G. no?
I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

I just compared, and I hear what you mean as far as the music goes. There's however no match lyricwise. Still, I feel I know this song, but in all those years I haven't found out what it is ... If someone does, please tell.

It has to be an early version or alternate lyrics... Same guitar even the tapping at the start sounds just like on "Heartbreakin' Man" EP./


well, when was Heartbreakin Man EP put out? 99 or was it early 2000?

I planned on having a closer listen later tonight ...
However, you know where to find all info regarding when what was released ;-)

R.I.P.V.G. was already on the ltd. bonus 7"single that came with "The Tennessee Fire" 2LP-set, which was released in May 1999. The "Heartbreakin Man" EP is from May 2000. When having another, closer listen, I will listen to both versions ... never noticed a difference, but who knows ...

I meant to check the site but got busy at work and it slipped my mind, thanks for looking it up...


Let's just not discuss that 7" unless you have an extra you'll sell me Ger...  :-?

No problem, you're more than welcome!

Oops, I have a confession to make ... Yes, I have two copies! However, I won't sell, sorry. I'll explain why ...

I have the original Tennessee Fire 2LP-set with the single, and I have one extra copy of the 7", which I actually got first.

After I became a MMJ fan on January 31, 2000 and set up the site on February 20, 2000 after watching the VPRO documentary "This Is Not America", I searched high and low to get every release out there at that time:
- "The Tennessee Fire" CD and 2LP with 7" single;
the compilations with at the time exclusive tracks:
- "Little Darla Has A Taste For You v.1" vinyl single (incl. "There's Just One Thing");
- "Little Darla Has A Treat For You v.12" CD (incl. "Rocket Man");
- "Little Darla Has A Treat For You v.13" CD (incl. "Death Is The Easy Way");
- "Little Darla Has A Treat For You v.14" CD (incl. "Mother");
and one compilation with a non-exclusive track, but I wanted everything then:
-"Little Darla Has A Treat For You v.11" CD (incl. "They Ran" from the at the time forthcoming album).

Yes, that was all! In the months/years following, I bought every release right when it came out.

Soon after I had set up the site I also got in touch with Jim, Johnny, and Tom (I never spoke to first drummer J. if I remember it right), and met them in person at the April 8, 2000 show. They came back in July that year, where I saw them play at the Swingin' Groningen Festival on the 7th. After the gig we met, and Jim handed me quite a few presents, including a copy of the 7" single! I had told him I had been unable to find the 2LP with the single so far, and he remembered!

And will you believe my surprise, when exactly two weeks later I visited one of my favourite recordstores at the time (now gone) in my then hometown Amsterdam, and found a copy of the 2LP with the single! Had I overlooked it before, had the shopowner been able to find another copy? I don't know, but since I had been trying to find it so desperately, I bought it right away.

So, that's the story of my two copies, and because I want to keep one as the original package, and I got the other as a present, I feel bad selling it.

I also have two copies of the At Dawn demos CD, one with the CD, and one with the 2LP. I first only bought the double CD-set when it was released in April 2001. On a Sunday, late January 2005 I was browsing the salesbins of one of the best recordstores in Amsterdam (Get Records). They very rarely have stuff on sale, but had to make some room now. I then came across, I think four copies of the "At Dawn" double LP with the demos CD for only 8 euros each. I couldn't resist buying it. A friend of mine bought a copy too. Very soon after, the other copies were gone. Now I think, I should have bought the other copies too, sit on it for a while, and sell it. Oh well, hopefully someone else has had the thrill of finding it!?

Also, the Heartbreakin Man EP has been on sale at another recordstore here in the summer of 2003. It was only 3.99 euros then. That same friend of mine bought a copy, and I bought two for fellow MMJ collectors. One for a guy who sent me an original copy of the Mother Lodge CD, the one with the George Harrison cover on it. I also bought him the Bad Jazz and Gold Hole singles, which I was still able to find then ... I got my own copies straight from the UK at the time of their release, but one store in Amsterdam had a few copies of both singles in stock until the end of 2003 (after I bought a copy of each of them, the owner told me he still had at least one of each in stock). Of course they're long gone now.

Oh well, only a year ago the hotel Roy CD was still available in Louisville for only 8 USD. If only I had known, if someone had told me, if I had been there ... If I was there, at the right time, the right place ... If I had been alive when Elvis released his first single, The Beatles, Stones, just to name a 'few' ... Oh well, I was there when Britpop was born, to name another one ... I was there when My Morning Jacket became the best band around, to name the topic why we are all here!

No one would blame you Ger, I couldn't sell a 7" that Jim himself gave me or break up a set. Thanks for the stories, I love reading that kind of stuff, you've got some great deals over time and I've had to pay for what I've got through the nose but I don't regret it one bit, after all, it's only money and if it makes you happy and you can scrape up the dough, you should get it.

Interesting story.  I have wondered when looking at your site.  I wish we would've known each other back in the day, we would've gotten along fabulously.  

In those days, I didn't have a lot of money being a college students and all, so I couldn't snatch up everything.  Plus, since I was in the same city as the band and kind of knew them outside of the music I couldn't help but thinking "am I just really wrapped up in this band and they're not really going to make it"?  Plus, having friends who know the band some of them would kind of look down their nose at me for collecting their records and standing in front of the band and rocking out at shows rather than milling around so I could be seen.

Anyway, I passed up on a lot of deals I should have picked up including gold hole and the at dawn vinyl.  I bought the CD with the demo and I thought that would be enough.  After the record was still for sale a year later I thought I could wait around forever, but of course I was wrong.  I really did believe in the band I just didn't have the money to invest, if I had I would have snatched multiples copies of all the limited releases.  

Thanks for the stories, the site, and the recordings Ger, you're an mmj hall-of-famer!

Dude, Magnix, that was the greatest story ever.  Seriously, I really enjoyed reading that history.  What would we have done without your early documentation?

Kory, when I win the lottory I am going to buy everything from you.  All at once.  One big clean sweep.  So keep colleting! ;)

My ex has that original Tennessee Fire 2LP-set with the 7" and I was so tempted to swipe it before I moved out but I didn't because I'd feel too guilty. We're still friends and last summer I tried to buy it from him and he wouldn't budge no matter what I offered him.
Everyone has a photographic memory. Some don't have film.

Way to go Ger!

Thanks for putting the goodies out.

This will be the first time I have gotten to hear any recordings of Jim James Solo.
I got to see Jim solo once and I thought it was fantastic.  He was not the headliner that night, but I bet Patti Griffin wish he would have been.  Her set was great, but it was obvious that all the folks came out for Jim.  

Thanks again.

You're very welcome!

If you like Jim solo, you're in for a treat! Last week I uploaded his performance from December 14, 2000, and I have the early show from the next day lined up to go up this week (today or tomorrow).

OK folks, volume 14 is up!

The Magnix My Morning Jacket Live Recordings Archive Volume 14 (MMMJLRA14)

Jim James solo acoustic
Ancienne Belgique Club, Brussels, Belgium
December 15, 2000 (early show)

http://www.archive.org/details/mmj2000-12-15.early.aud.flac16

Kory, I'm sure you will update the list at the start of this thread  8-)

Furthermore, I am uploading the next volume already as well! Since I started this project I uploaded at least one recording each week. I'm not sure if I'm gonna be able to do so next week, because I will be away for a couple of days and I have some other things going on. This next volume is a smaller one, and I had it ready, so I thought I'd put it out there now. I'll drop another post here when it's available.

And I should note that volume 15 completes the year 2000. Including volume 0, and the already available May 13 show, there are now 17 different dates/shows/sessions available for the year 2000 (18 of you count the two different sources for the 2 Meter Sessies individually). Not bad I think ...

Unfortunately 2001 does not have that many recordings in circulation. Of course there are already 5 dates up at the archive, and so far it looks like I can 'only' add 4 or 5 more. By the way, Dylan, will you take care of the 9/8 Planetarium show?

Furthermore, there are two 2000 dates I know that have been taped, and I have tried to track them down, but to no avail so far. I have been in touch with the taper, but the communication went dead. These are the April 3 show at the 013 in Tilburg, The Netherlands and the April 13 show at the Effenaar in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

There are also three 2001 shows which have been recorded, but never made it out to the open. I was standing next to the taper at one of them, and that same taper also recorded another show, but the recordings never have come into circulation as far as I know. And believe me, I have been trying. I was at both shows he recorded, so I would really love to have those tapes! These are the May 25 show at the Vera club in Groningen, The Netherlands, the May 26 show at the Ancienne Belgique Club in Brussels, Belgium, and the May 28 show at the Paradiso in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I was at both Dutch shows ... my 5th & 6th MMJ live experience since January 2000! Too bad they've come over so few times after that (only two, of which I even had to miss one).

adding it to my list of things to do over spring break.  I keep putting it off for some reason.  Too bad there aren't more 2001 shows in circulation, that was a great year for the band.
