If you have seen the documentary “The Devil and Daniel Johnston” good job! It’s a great documentary that everyone should see. Secondly, you should recall the women Kathy McCarty who was prominent member of the Austin, TX music scene during the Eighties, and Daniel Johnston’s first girlfriend. If you recall her then you should also recall her talking about a tribute album she did to take away the lo-fi noiseyness that are Daniel Johnston albums and to make them more accessible. Well, this is that tribute album! These songs span from just about every early Johnston album/tape (I think), and are indeed more accessible and well recorded. They span from orchestrated strings to garage-rock to MIDI keyboard goodness. This is a must for anyone who has heard Johnston, and for those who haven’t….go listen to him please.
