New guy to the list here. Not really to Jandek as I remember his Spin
profile from 20 years ago; it was a random linkng in Wikipedia when I
came across his entry that I got seriously interested in the man,
starting with that righteous documentary. After that I ordered the
first two albums from Forced Exposure but only got Six By Six (they
were out of Ready's).
Anyway, I just got my first 20-count box from Corwood the other day and
have barely skimmed the surface of it (only a few CDs played so far)...
I only specified a few titles that I specifically wanted "Ready For The
House", "Telegraph Melts", "Glasgow Sunday" and "Raining Down Diamonds"
being four of the five I specified, don't remember what the fifth one
was, but I asked Corwood not to include Six And Six as that was the
only one I had before I made my order.
Soon as I go through all these sonic beauties I'll be sending a check
to the Corwood rep for the rest of the catalog... watch him put out
another album or two before that happens, right? Then again, since the
mailers Corwood uses for these 20-count bulk sales actually hold 25
CD's that might not be a problem. :)
