The Album

The Man with No Shadow

In May 2002, Disney pulled the plug on Mammoth Records just weeks before the release date of John Wesley Harding's The Man with No Shadow. Though many - but not all - of the songs ended up on 2004's Adam's Apple, which All Music Guide called 'the finest album of his career', those that did make the cut were jumbled. The album was never released on vinyl. And here it finally is, as originally intended, for Record Store Day 2020.

The book

Wonderkid

A delirious and touching novel of fathers and sons, the dangers of compromise and thwarted ambition, told with humor and energy by a writer as comfortable in a rock club as a bookstore. A backstage epic of sex, drugs, and rock and roll, but also sippy cups, pillow fights, and Baby Bjorns, Wonderkid is Almost Famous through the looking glass.
