    Thanks Sloan! The first song Jack Logan sang was called “Melodrama”, a unreleased Vic song from pre-record company 4 track session.

    Thanks a ton for posting this – cant wait to hear nite #2. I can still remember standing in my friend Nicks living room in 1995 (ish) listening to vic for the 1st time. The last time I saw him live was in Los Angeles a few weeks before xmas – it was one of the most amazing concerts he played..Isadora Duncan for the encore brought tears to my eyes…

    Thanks so much for this. Looking forward to part 2. Though the reason for the shows makes me sad, I am so grateful for all the music. I remember first hearing Little in a record store in Berkeley, CA not long after it came out, and how excited I was to bring the album home. I checked my mp3 player last week and realized that I have more of Vic, album and live, than anyone else on there. I only got to see him twice over the years, so thanks for posting all those live shows of his earlier.

    Thanks for uploading these songs. Kelly Hogan’s studio version of “Soft Picasso” is, and forever will be, the best cover of a Vic Chesnutt song ever.
