Josh Ritter, I want you so badly it hurts me inside.

For those of you who don't know, Josh has recently released a deluxe edition of his studio album Golden Age of Radio (arguably my favorite Josh disc) with a bonus disc of him performing the entire album solo acoustic. Anyone who was privileged to see Josh on his solo US tour a few years ago will already know what a delight this is. Sure, his work with the band is great, and "Rumors" and "To the Dogs or Whoever" and "Lillian, Egypt" wouldn't be nearly as awesome solo, but the stuff on GAoR is amazing when it's paired down like this.

I've been waiting to listen to this record for a couple of days now, but I took a sneak peek while uploading it to my iPod for the trip. I am now sitting here at the computer, tears rolling down my cheeks, because of this song.

"Come and Find Me" --- Josh Ritter, solo acoustic (yousendit link, m4a format)

It's so echo-y and ghostly and perfect. Oh Josh, nothing moves me like you do. Now just come back to Oregon already, goddamnit.

Awwww....prettyx27! I'm a big acoustic fan of anyone. I don't think I've ever developed enough of an appreciate of Josh, certainly not the appreciation you have. And I need to. This would likely be the perfect choice of albums to get me hooked on him. YAY.

How are you doing? Panic?

It's a gorgeous album. You could definitely get hooked to the acoustic one, I'm sure. We'll make you a copy when I get home.

Panic, yes. Went to bed around midnight, woke in a panic at 5 and then tried to doze until 7. Got up at six. And now I'm sitting here, panicking. Gonna go rewatch the SPN season finale to try and calm down. *giant hugs*

It's a gorgeous album, isn't it?

About the panic, remember you can call me at any time. I'll let you ramble and then distract you with shiny thoughts.

Also went to bed at exactly midnight and was restless all night. I'm pretty sure I was feeling panic pains for you. I woke up around five, got up, read a while, napped-ish and finally got up again at 7:30. Was going to give you a call, but figured you had too much to worry about and didn't want to interrupt the preparations.

I'll be thinking happy thoughts for you today! :) And also, SPN to calm you down?!! Not sure if that's a good choice. LOL.

Oh, Josh! ♥ What are we doing about this? Am I meant to be buying the Irish version? We will discuss this while you're here!

I have just downloaded this, must pause Zachary, must pause Zachary, need me some Josh...

I just love him. I want the echoey and the ghostly and the perfect. I love acoustic, love it, love it.
