The Suicide Handbook

It pains me to say that my love affair with Ryan Adam's music has waned a bit over the past couple of years. He is still one of my favorites, and his records 'Heartbreaker' and 'Jacksonville City Nights' especially will always be among my all time favorites. But his last two albums have left me less than thrilled, although 'Easy Tiger' is really starting to grow on me.

I am happy to report that I was reminded of just how much I love the guy this evening. I was online looking around for an advance copy of the soon to be released EP 'Follow The Lights' and I found this amazing bootleg called 'The Suicide Handbook'. I don't have a lot of information about it, but based on the track list I am guessing it was recorded soon after 'Demolition' came out. It is a beautiful acoustic set, and he sounds amazing.

Here is a track called 'For No One' is a blurb I found from Mr. Adams about the song:

"For No One" almost went on demolition but it would have been like the ninth song about said beautiful trobled actress sweetheart, so im gonna put it on the next album. but maybe. i need to finish it. it need a b-section and also a second verse."
