Trace and Straightaways are the most genuine albums my naive ears have ever heard. Tweedy's music created a tame following and a chunk of dough. Jay Farrar made something timeless, something no amount of money or yuppie fans can take the place of. Thank you Jay, you never deviated from your vision. Son Volt's Austin City Limits makes me feel the same, today, as it did the first time in 96.'
