Ryan Adams Drops Live After Deaf Box

Fans of Ryan Adams have spent at least half a decade now waiting for the much-rumored/never-released 20:20 box set, which would finally unearth a ton of rarities, most notably all those in-the-vault albums that Adams “really wanted to be records”: The Suicide Handbook, 48 Hours, Pinkhearts, Darkbreaker, and Black Hole. And this past Tuesday, via his Facebook page, Adams announced that a box set WOULD be released … today! Of course it’s not 20:20 but something called Live After Deaf, which contains (per Adams’s Facebook), “144 tracks of live acoustic Ryan spread across 15 vinyl discs…with a download card featuring all 144 tracks PLUS an additional 74 digital-only bonus tracks (yup, that’s a total of 218 tracks) all in a heavyweight cloth box” available in “Super Duper limited numbers.” Adams tweeted that the set will cost $130-plus-shipping and weigh 13 lbs. Live After Deaf is available for purchase RIGHT NOW via Adams’s own PAX-AM label — which, it appears, has been crashed by fans clamoring to buy the thing. Keep hitting refresh!
