A great album with some nice extras

"Golden Age of Radio (Deluxe Edition)" is a great album with some of Josh Ritter's very best songs, including "Me & Jiggs," "Harrisburg," and "Golden Age of Radio." Overall, the album leans more towards simple acoustic arrangements than his later albums. This makes the "Bonus Acoustic Album" aspect of this Deluxe Edition seem a bit silly. The bonus songs labelled "acoustic" are just Josh and his guitar. "Come And Find Me (acoustic)" is very nice, but not all that different from the original, so if you already own the album, just listen to the original version of "Come And Find Me" and you will get rough idea of what all the other "acoustic" versions sound like. That may help you decide if you want to throw for the whole thing or just get the few that really appeal to you. If you don't already own this album and love Josh Ritter's work, by all means skip the standard version of this album and spend the extra few dollars for this Deluxe Edition. The Jackdrag Remixes were produced by John Dragonetti and sound like Josh Ritter Meets The Submarines, with "Other Side (Jackdrag Remix)" actually ending up stronger than the original version.

If you are new to Josh Ritter's work, perhaps "The Animal Years" is a better place to start in order to get your feet wet, but once you decide to dive in, this album should be high on your list.

I don't really know any of these songs, but I do know that the electric guitarist on this album was my 4 through 6 grade teacher!
