I'm not sure if this story is funny or sad, but it's true, and it demonstrates almost everything that's wrong with digital music: The first three tracks on this record are "Fake Empire," "Mistaken for Strangers," and "Brainy," in that order. I got this album through . . . eMusic, I believe, when I still subscribed to eMusic. There was some technical snafu, and "Fake Empire" and "Mistaken for Strangers" didn't come through. Not a big deal, right? Wrong. It was WELL OVER A YEAR until I realized the first two songs existed. Consequently, my Boxer starts with Brainy. So, yeah, glad to have the whole thing in one place now.

This LP is 37 years old. Do you think you'll have ANY of the mp3s you own today in 37 years?
