1. B-side of the More From The Mountain 7” single on Woodsist – previously only available on vinyl.

2-7.
From the Spring 2005 Tour CDR. These are the five songs from the CD that feature Wooden Wand – try to seek out the Hush Arbors songs, too; they’re great. We recorded this all together at our respective homes in Knoxville, TN, to raise some money for tour. “Hello Sunshine” was originally recorded by Relatively Clean Rivers, “Goodbye The Day” was originally recorded by Mandy Morton, and “At The Crossroads” was originally recorded by the Sir Douglas Quintet, all of whom we were obsessed with at the time. The versions of “If You’re Dead To Your Girl (You’re Dead To the World)” and “We Must Also Love The Thieves” are home recordings and differ from released versions. I’m joined on “Hello Sunshine” and “At The Crossroads” by Keith Wood and Jessica Bowen. We found, much to our disappointment, that many of these tour CDRs didn’t play--we hadn’t figured out yet that you apply the sticker to the CD face AFTER you burn it. And so this glitchy version of “At The Crossroads” – unfortunately the best version we currently have in the archives – is included for posterity only.

7-11 Wooden Wand & The Vanishing Voice live on KDVS, 90.3, Davis, California, 06/29/05. A rare ‘all songs’ on-air performance, heavy Family Jams-vibe throughout, and including a very spirited and widely bootlegged cover of Neil’s “Vampire Blues.”

12-13 From the split 7” with Golden Boots, on People In A Position To Know, previously only available on vinyl.

Wooden Wand Lexington, Kentucky

Says Swans frontman and head of Young God Records Michael Gira, James Jackson Toth’s “got that picaresque quality that Dylan had in his heyday, wherein the shambolic narrator undergoes various travails and epiphanies—harrowing, bleak and darkly comical—in the course of a narrative, then leaves you mystified, both smiling and sad.” ... more
