Here’s something we can all look forward to. The 10th anniversary reissue of Damien Jurado’s Where Shall You Take Me? is available next Tuesday. For those of you who are not familiar with this work, know that the album is Damien’s fifth full-length, originally released in 2003. The double LP includes previously unreleased demos unearthed from the original basement reel-to-reel tapes and the Just In Time For Something EP (never before released on vinyl).
This reissue is also dedicated to Damien’s late label-mate, Jason Molina. “If it were not for Jason Molina, I may not have ended up on the Secretly Canadian record label," Damien says. "The guy practically twisted one arm behind my back, and with the other, walked me through the front door of where I am today. I am eternally grateful for the guidance, knowledge, influence, and inspiration he so graciously shared with me. The reissue of this album is dedicated to his life and legacy.”
