Very much getting ahead of himself, Rhett Miller posted the above clip of him talking aboutThe Grand Theatre, Volume Two
--remember, the Old 97's new, return-to-form Volume One doesn't come out until Tuesday
--to YouTube earlier this weekas part of his new video diary series
There's still some interesting insight here, though--mostly the fact that Miller's angling his fellow 97's players to let him include an old song called "Muddy Rio Grande" from longtime Dallas favorite Killbilly (with which Miller and bassist Murry Hammond once played) on the next volume. And, in the clip, Miller even plays a bit of the chorus for his viewers. Pretty good stuff, too.
Somewhere, Big Dick Hunter is jumping for joy.
