Speaking of mythology, I know that declaring that the hard-to-find demos for this album are better than what was eventually released just adds to the overwhelming mythos already surrounding the album. But they are, they are! Songs like "Venus Stopped The Train," "Not For the Season" and the Badfinger version of "Kamera" have more punch and immediacy than what was released. None of this demeans the final album, which I like a lot (and should have put on my 2001 list, as instinct told me to). The upcoming DVD of the movie and accompanying EP should just finally close the chapter on all of this, and I can hardly wait to see what Jeff Tweedy does next.
