That's amazing.  Thank you CC.  Interesting to think about how much the world and the band and I have changed in the past 15 years.  What a gift we got that day.

wow...  happy anniversary!!!

 I remember that time, it was pretty wild hearing it for the first time but I really got into it eventually.  They used to play sort of similar sets back then but super small venues, good memories!!!

Thanks so much for posting these Z reviews and interviews CC!  Coming in around 2015, I missed all this. You can feel the excitement about this album on both sides, band and reviewers.  Very cool.

Thanks from me as well.  I'm in the same boat as MPP, didn't get into them until seeing them at OBH 2015 (we had seen them on the Americarama tour in 2013).  So seeing all these past articles makes for an enjoyable afternoon read.

These articles are great thanks again!  I read some of them at that time but missed some as well.

The photos are great to look back on as well!

Two things stood out for the Harp article to me are:

#1) 20 people auditioned on guitar, 20 people auditioned on keyboards (I wonder who they were).  Carl & Bo were the first to try out for each spot.

#2) Jim's thoughts on rock 'n roll, and how to him "Now it seems like a way to bring meaning to the world."  Amen.
