Listening to this album again and love it. If there are any Frisell fans that missed this one because it is listed as a Viktor Krauss disc you need to check it out. It is called FAR FROM ENOUGH.

Olson Jr. I gave it a listen with your thoughts in mind, and though I can hear the similarities you mention, my guess is that it is probably not intentional, but who knows? I really like Frisell's work. Another of his that is a bit similar to this is "Gone, Just Like a Train" also with Krauss and with Jim Keltner on drums. A bit more Americanna thrown in on that one. Yours was an interesting observation.
MnMark, I have really gotten into Frisells music in the last couple of years. Enjoy both Gone Like a Train and Good Dog Happy Man. Would love to see him live, have you?
I always seem to hear other songs or snipits of other songs im music. Sometimes I can get my wife to listen but she only agrees with me half the time.
Right now I am listening to Becks Sea Change, Already Dead and I hear Traffic's and Nick Drake influences???
Olson jr, Yes, I did see Frisell about a year ago at a small local venue. He was great to listen to live, and did some songs that I haven't heard him play before. He did I think 3 Dylan songs (maybe due to local interest), and it was fun to try to recognize the song before it became obvious. He had a small electronic floor console of some kind and was always fiddling with it with his foot as he played, recording loops and playing them back on the fly. Imagine two Frisells playing at once! The soundstage on the West disk of his East West album is the deepest, strangest, most layered that I have ever heard. You have to listen to it. I also like Sea Change, Drake, and Traffic. I'll check it out.
Mnmark, I have the East West disc too. Love the intro to Grapevine on that one.
The only time Frisell played here, that I knew of, we were going to be on vacation and I missed him.
I was listening to a Zero 7 Cd yesterday called 'When It Falls' and told my wife that tracks 6 and 7 (When It Falls and The Space Between) sound like they are doing a little bit of Echos. Now she thinks everything reminds me of Pink Floyd.
