With the stunning new record from Son Volt set to drop on July 7th, I thought it high time to up a few songs from one of my favorite songwriters, Jay Farrar. Simply put, his songs have a profound effect on me as both a listener and a songwriter. These songs are culled from both of his solo releases as well as the first six Son Volt records including three tracks from the soon to released American Central Dust.
