John Hartford - Steam Powered Aeretoakes


This is a compilation of the B-sides and outtakes from the recording of Aereoplain. With the entire album being genius, its not surprising to see that quite a bit of genius work was cut out. In some songs it is very interesting to here where Hartford was headed. You can hear a direction of sound, and in some instances, understand some decisions to cut songs. I would argue that none (or very few) of these songs were cut for quality, but instead for a continuing of a concept. The mood of Aereoplain is a perfect direction, and some songs would not have fit. However, just cause they dont fit in a run through of Aereoplain (some certainly do anyway) doesn't mean they aren't good songs. I absolutely recommend this to Hartford fans

  • You are violating the terms of service for blogspot and more importantly you are violating the copyright of many artists. You could easily be liable for millions of dollars, especially since you're in the US - you should read http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/10/04/national/main3330186.shtml and then you should probably take all this pirated material down as fast as you can before blogspot gives your personal information to the RIAA. not too hard to track you from your IP even if you gave bogus personal information, you do have multiple blogs on here afterall.
