  1. Aside from the different lyrics, the song is basically the same. Still, I’m glad to hear they are reissuing this stuff on vinyl. Either/Or is one of my favorite albums of all time. It’s definitely worth a vinyl buy.

  2. Smith’s music is one of the last true artifacts of what Portland used to be. He’s our Woody Guthrie.
