Ryan Adams-Country Punk (2001?)

Artist: Ryan Adams
Album: Country Punk
Label: Bootleg
Year: 2001

This bootleg is from a live, solo show Adams did in roughly 2001*ish. The only songs with names come from Heartbreaker and the others are listed as new. It is a relatively unremarkable set. While the songs are mostly great, they are all played in a somber tone. More than anything, the bootleg illustrates just how important the arrangements and orchestration are to making Heartbreaker such a fantastic record. The set goes on a bit too long, and Adams' banter with the crowd is cringe-worthy and drunk.
