Ryan Adams: Music In High Places....

In the summer of 2002 riding the wave created from Gold, Ryan was asked to go to Jamaica and film some live acoustic recordings. Music In High Places is a recurring DVD/Television program that features bands playing live in exotic places - others included are bands like Goo Goo Dolls, Deftones, and Unwritten Law.


The Rescue Blues:

Touch Feel & Lose:

The DVD was released in 2003, and yes, I have a copy. There are some limited behind the scenes shots that I especially enjoyed - Ryan shopping in Jamaican markets, meeting Toots Hibbert, and teaching some locals to sing harmony. Ryan performed Firecracker, You Will Always Be The Same, The Rescue Blues, Touch Feel & Lose, New York New York, Hard Time Situation (with Toots), and Answering Bell. The special also aired on MTV on in August of 2002.

  2. um, wow. thanks for letting me know.

  3. Ryan Adams seems to be a great project, I love the way his band revolutionized the music industry with their DVD.
