Question: Can you recommend Grandaddy / Lytle songs for someone who only knows "He's Simple..."?

    I like albums -- "He's simple..." is followed by a fantastic album (The Sophtware Slump). I can't pick individual songs as favorites, it works so well as an album, but "Jed's Other Poem" and "The Crystal Lake" are so good.

    The Jason Lytle album "Yours Truly, The Commuter", is also very good in a different way. "Ghost of My Old Dog" is so simple and beautiful, and flows in to "I am lost...".

    Having said all of that, the rawness of the old stuff, "Under the Western Freeway", especially "Everything Beautiful is Far Away" is very appealing to me. There's also an album "A pretty mess by this one band" or something which is great.

    Just to be clear: I'm not recommending songs there, but the entire albums. Just noting songs that since you asked for songs... ;)
