Viva la Vinyl: Ryan Adams' California 7"....

Here's another set of freshly-ripped vinyl tracks from none other than Ryan Adams. These songs make up the California 7" EP, the second of the three PaxAM releases set free in 2004. All four sides of this collection are taken directly from 2000's Exile on Franklin Street.

A: California
B: Waves Crashing

C: Secret Powers

D: Do You Wanna Get High?

I posted the vinyl tracks from Ryan's first PaxAM release - The Rescue Blues EP - here and mentioned that there were rumors that Ryan was looking to resurrect the vinyl label. Well, unless there's an imposter on a Ryan Adams forum, then the man himself has shared further details on the matter.

Wolfhunter says that certain, newer, unreleased material should be available "eventually." Among the material to be released are Cardinology outtakes, and Cardinals IV/V, the latter of which are complete records made with the original Cardinals lineup. He also says that they will be available on vinyl and as mp3 downloads.

Suspicions confirmed! Check out Ryanada.ms for an informative video of his PaxAM vinyl mastering machine. Oh, there's also a couple mp3's from the first pressing available for purchase - and download on Friday. Well, maybe the second release if you count the 7" that came with the Hello Sunshine pre-order - which I should post here in a few.

You get:
•Lost and Found

•Go Ahead and Rain

for only $1.49

Hiatus officially over. Rejoice.

  1. Thanks for all the RA posts! Exile on Franklin Street is an awesome collection of songs, though I think Waves Crashing may be my favorite, so of course I was glad to see it here.

  2. Thanks Payton! It's great to have Ryan back, isn't it? I'm sure I'm not the only one excited for his PaxAm rejuvenation.

  3. Thank you for "Waves Crashing"! Amazing RA song I had never heard!

  4. Interesting sound for sure, I love to hear music of the old days, it has such feelings and intensity.
