VIRAL VIDEO: Ryan Adams in Jamaica

Another Episode of Viral Video

Filmed in romantic non-music locations around the globe, the public television music series "Music in High Places" is sadly, no more. Ryan Adams played Jamaica and it was the finest of the series. (Are you kidding me? Music in High Places filmed in Jamaica?!) For years this has been one of my favorite collections of live video performance - as much as for cinematography and the high-quality sound recording as for Adams' incredible playing there. The time period for Adams and his band is extremely relevant. PBS got him when he was still making a name for himself. He is performing songs from the Gold album before they were made famous. The results is a masterful acoustic - energetic and fresh each time. What makes these tracks even more entertaining is that Adams (who has temporarily retired) doesn't really play most of these tracks anymore. These are true snapshot videos - a moment in time is beautifully captured. Do yourself a favor and pick up the Music In High Places DVD from your local indie rock record store.
