It is not strange. I don't think that music sound suits him. I only Judge that from seeing him in 2 Documentaries. But i am a little surprised of dislike of Canadian Sunset because it could have been a SUN Recording. I think it reminds of that time. And i hope that he likes that period.

Dr. Rock never asked or said anything about the new book, only that he has not read it yet.

Wouldn't it be great to get the Caribou sessions on three 12" vinyl albums from Elektra with some great artwork and liner notes. Only dreaming, I know.

I don't like the Caribou sessions much, thoough there's enough for one half-decent LP & the gospel tracks would sound good with vocal group overdubs. Far, far superior are the 1987 Eddie Kilroy recordings. Could've been his best album of the 80s.

What about these Eddie Kilroy sessions. I've never heard of these, but would like to know more. Is there a thread already? I've been listening to the Knox sessions lately and they are great. Hope there is more and it comes out soon.

Some of the 1987 tracks have been circulating for well over a decade (Rock & Roll Is Something Special, One Of Them Old Things, Hang Up My Rock & Roll Shoes, When I Get My Wings, etc). Jerry sounded inspired & in great voice, similar to the early shows in the April '87 European tour. If the best songs from this session + the best songs from the "Rocket" sessions (produced by Bob Moore) a few months earlier were combined, then it would've made a superb album.

I don't know, but when Jerry performed the song at some of the April 1987 shows Joel Schumaker played slide guitar (it wasn't him on the session - I asked him!).

Thank you for posting those videos. I have never heard them before. They were really great. I imagine there is a slew of recordings both studio and live and video that will only be released upon his death. What a Catch 22!

Yes, I'm sure it will be similar to what happened with Johnny Cash's post-demise career...

Jerry apparently recorded several unreleased sessions between leaving MCA & recording the movie soundtrack (1984 - 1988). Much as I look forward to Bear Family's next SUN set, I really wish they'd cover the years 1979-1995! This has the potential to be the most fascinating boxset of all.

Not sure about that. He is nowhere near as popular as Cash.

I agree with that.
