Jack and Faye was to have been a 7" containing the final recordings by the Mountain Goats of the Sweden/Nine Black Poppies/Nothing for Juice era. There were multiple delays. At one point there was finished artwork. Then there were more delays. Eventually history staked its claim on these recordings and it was almost as though they never even existed at all. Well: here they are, finally, in the mp3 format. Just grab them and they are yours, free of charge. If enough people show interest in obtaining some sort of cover art and liner notes for the Jack and Faye single, this site will eventually provide a "cover" which you'll be able download and print out, either for cassette or CD-R. Express your interest in this possibility by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. The songs themselves were recorded in December of 1995 and January of 1996 in Chicago, Illinois and San Dimas, California. John and Rachel considered them some of their best work and were especially fond of "Raid on Entebbe." Time has given them a somewhat melancholy air. We hope you enjoy them.
