The Jawhawks Triumphant Return!

On September 6 at a festival in Spain, the five original members of The Jayhawks played their first show together since the mid-90's. As much as I love the Gary Louris-led version of the band, they do not sound the same with the unmistakable harmonies of Mark Olson.
Since no announcement of an official Jayhawks reunion had occured, I can not tell you what a pleasent surprise it was to find out that this show took place. Mark and Gary are releasing an album together in January so I can only assume we have not heard the last of this incarnation of The Jayhawks.

Click the link below to download the show and a big thanks to the taper! The sound is less than stellar, but it works for me. Enjoy.
