Well, that's good. Maybe the rock radio stations will play that.

Received my 7" this evening. I think that if I were one of Jack's peers, I would be both honored and nervous to know he was planning to cover one of my songs. His version of Parallel is, like most of his other covers, a whole new song. And a gorgeous one, too.

I put my impressions into a spoiler in case some folks want their first listen to be un-colored--

with all this talk about the b-side and not a mention of the a, why not release two non-album tracks instead?

The a-side was talked about how many months ago when the album came out? Since they didn't do this the "normal" way, with singles coming out before and right at the album release, the a-sides are well familiar by now. So, heck, I agree-- Why not just put out non-album track singles at this point?

No problem. I'll be interested in hearing your impressions when you get your copy, see if you hear anything it differently.
I wrote this over at the Vault last night, thought I'd throw it in here just for the sake of potential conversation--
Went out driving today through the countryside around the West VA/Maryland border. Came around a curve at dusk to see rolling fields stretching out from the road and the sun setting behind the mountains beyond, just as Jack and Lillie Mae's voices soared at the end of Parallel. As sad as that song is in light of Ikey's death, in that moment it gave me such a rush of euphoria that I burst out laughing. I'm so grateful to Jack and the whole Lazaretto band/family for gifts like that from this album. When all is said and done, I don't know whether Lazaretto will be remembered as one of Jack's more notable records but, between certain things in the Vault 20 book, this year's tour, and moments like today, I've had so many emotional experiences connected with it that it's becoming very, very special to me.

No one noticed that Dean played on WYFFML when the album came out back in June? According to Jack, WYFFML is a combination of three different songs-- The male band played on one part, the female band played on another, and both bands apparently played on a third. Then they had to blend them all together during the mixing process. Jack talked about that in the book that came with Vault 20 and in some recent interviews.
But, yes, very apropos that Jack's cover of Dean would be on the same single.

What I love about the b sides especially MGS, POML, and parallel is the songs seem to have more room to breath and have great instrumental breaks.
Interesting observation. Any idea why it seems these songs have more of that breathing room?

That's an interesting thing to think about. I agree it'd be great if he added some of his b-sides to his set. Machine Gun would be a lot of fun, and Parallel could be even more beautiful live.
