7 Songs, 39 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Initially given as a gift for purchasing merchandise from the Caldo Verde Records website, this seven-song EP was later issued as a digital download. It features six songs recorded live at the Blackbox in Belfast, Ireland, on Nov. 4, 2007, while "Tonight in Bilbao" is from a concert at the Dancehouse Theatre in Manchester, England, on Oct. 30, 2007. The European tour was an acoustic one featuring Mark Kozelek and guitarist Phil Carney. Together they bring out the best in the material, primarily songs from 2001's Old Ramon album by Red House Painters and Ghosts of the Great Highway by Sun Kil Moon; those were the two bands Kozelek headed in the '00s. A sweet version of John Denver's "Around and Around" sets the stage for an intense six minutes of "River," where the guitars drone and mix to dramatic proportions. At just seven songs, the EP still manages a respectable 40 minutes of transcendent performances.
