Round up of Old 97's New Songs

As most of you know, the Old 97's are readying a new album, which is now planned to come out in not one, but two volumes. The first is scheduled for October 12. The 97's have been out on the road, touring behind their great covers CD Mimeograph, but have been playing some of the new songs. Through the magic of the Internet and widely available video technology, I thought I'd put together a round up of videos of the new songs.

And, if you haven't already watched, check out my interview with Rhett. He tells stories behind the songs and plays a few previews. It's fun to watch as these songs develop before the CDs are released.

If you know of any other videos of news songs that I haven't listed here, let me know and I'll add!
