Love Eric's version of Julia I got to hear it so many times back in the day. Would love to hear it on the live CD :)
Still one of my most favorite covers for EC. Would love to hear it live one more time...well that and a list of of others...:) I once told E how much I loved when he sings Julia and he said "me too I go to a whole other place"
@Rick.. Faster Than my Angels Can Fly was released on Carolina as Bonus Tracks for the CD that was sold Exclusive at Best Buy at the time Carolina was released. The 3 Bonus Tracks were 1) My Heart's Got a Memory, 2) Faster... 3) His Kind of Money, My Kind of Love.
Might find one on eBay if you're lucky!
I agree with you. Eric's version of Julie is one of my favorite songs. A live album featuring this song would be incredible but I fear its time has come and gone
I definitely agree that EC should cut this and put it on the next album or even for immediate download on iTunes. I heard him play it in Nashville in 2009 at the Rutledge. Pat's version is okay, then EC takes it over the top and makes it seem like an original. He just never seems to fail!
Any word of EC releasing another EP like he did with Caldwell County? I'd love to see some of the songs like "Julia" or "The Weight" on there. Maybe "Whiskey Wings" as well.
The label wants to re-release content off of Sinners. I doubt they would re-release anything from Carolina though as it was only 1 album before Chief but I could always be proved wrong!
I LOVE Julia...I think it's a fantastic song...I listen to it all the time!
I love Faster too...and Carla...when was that promised?!?!
TOTALLY agree about Faster Than My Angels Can Fly. I can't believe that one has never made it to an album.
Who thinks they could go back to old albums and re-release songs now and they'd rocket up the charts?
There's a lot of great songs off those first couple of albums.
I think Julia is ok. Loved his verison of The Weight and Fat Bottom Girls so much more. Oh and Chevy Van.
I have always heard the rumor that he won't play it at shows because he didn't write Julia. *shrug*. I don't know if that is true or not but that is what I've always heard.
It's not my favorite song, one of my favorite songs is Faster Than My Angels Can Fly and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to hear that one live!!!
Turning this topic into talk of a live CD..... Look at all the tickets sold on this tour. How many of those people would want to re-live that show thru a live Cd AND a DVD. $25, $30, $35..whatever... gets you the CD/DVD package. Pick a date on this second leg of the tour. Hire a company with the experience to film it and you have yourself a money maker.
As for the covers like Julia or The Weight on this live CD...probably not. Just keep the set list as is. But.....put Julia on the next studio album and on the next tour go ahead and play some of those early days favorites, including a few covers done the Eric Church way.
Keep it rollin' Eric Church! We're been behind you from the beginning. Looking forward to your music changing country radio. i.e... less Lady Antebellum and more Eric Church.
I agree a live CD would be awesome!! I stumbled upon the video of him singing The Weight a while back and it instantly became a favorite of mine. Listen to it every chance I get.
I love that song and video! I play it on you tube every once in a while. I was just thinking about that the other day. I would like to hear it on a album as well!
Hmm, not a very popular song evidently. Oh well, I love it. Hope others enjoy those old Eric Church vids. If you want to see Eric in his earlier days (presunglasses) make sure you search Eric Church Pledge Allegiance Tin Roof. Awesome look at a 2007 show. Small bar, lot of beer, rowdy crowd. Great stuff
