ROB SEZ: There's some overlap in these two rarities collections, which come courtesy of Mick and thanks to Don from the old ASH blog (Mick is the biggest JF fan I know of). But I figured you'd rather have two copies of a few of these rather than not hear 'em at all... Jason Falkner and R. Stevie Moore recently released (?re-released?) a collaboration called Make It Be, which is getting great reviews (check out Rushbo's review for Rockerzine). Many say the project brings out the best in both artists (see more below). Bonus share? Of course...

Jason Falkner & R. Stevie Moore made this album.

  2. I reviewed the Moore-Falkner album for Rockerzine - just in case you're interested:

    1. Excellent! Just added a link to your review in the post.

  3. Fantastic blog. Can't get enough Falkner. Regarding his rarities/demos, do you happen to have (or know where I can find) the songs "Take Good Care Of Me" and "Roadkill Blues"? Can't seem to find them anywhere. Many thanks!

    1. Hello John - Thanks for the thanks. Sorry, I do not have those two tracks either...

  4. Gotta love the Web. Voila, here they are:
