Someone over at the OR board recently posted a link to the old archived OR website, which had links to an old Shearwater website, which had links to three songs from The Dissolving Room.

http://web.archive.org/web/200204200813 ... ounds.html

There most likely are a lot of post-Palo Santo convertees to Shearwater who are, like me, slowly acquiring the SW back-catalog. Unfortunately, TDR is no longer available through Misra, and I don't see it on iTunes (maybe someone knows a source). Anyway, thought people might like a chance to hear a few of the hard-to-find older songs.

Is this on emusic?
I'm sure one could find a copy on ebay if they looked long enough.
But is there another (better) source?
anyone? I really want this... those 3 songs just make me want more :P

Nope, The Dissolving Room is the only one you can't find on emusic, for some reason. It's not completely impossible to find, but it IS impossible to buy.

I think I have the remaining copies of this here in my house. We haven't repressed partly because I figured there wouldn't be much demand. But I guess it does have some historic value - we recorded it ten years ago, in three days, in a building in Austin that's since been torn down.

Would you guys like to see this back in print and available, at least digitally and through the SW site? If you do, I'll try to make it happen.

That would most definitely be interesting! A digital release is fine with me.

That would be wonderful! Any way that I can hear more SW music is fine with me, whether it's a CD, digital release, or two cans tied together with string. I'm not picky.

haha. more SW! hurray!

I'm sure the people around the board would be more than happy to snatch up those copies up from the site! I'd pay for a hard copy! :D

Funny, I was just listening to The Dissolving Room at work today. There is something deeply personal about the album, as if you were eavesdropping when you knew you shouldn't. The particular type of weather we're having in Seattle reminded me of it.

I think it's a terrific album and I enjoy how it hints at what is to come from Shearwater and Okkervil River. My favorite songs are Mulholland (I'd love to hear today's Shearwater "cover" this one), Ella is the First Rider, Angelina and Military Clothes (especially the first thirty seconds).

i got mine almost exactly 1 year ago from amazon.com when it was still in print, guess i was lucky.

although i truly love mulholland, i'm not to keen on the rest of the record. it is really different, even from everybody makes mistakes.

I got my copy as a gift from the kind of friend everybody should have.

I love The Dissolving Room. Listening to it is like looking at teenage photos of the person you love -- they're crude and gawky in some shots, but also beautiful in ways they'll never be again, and with the benefit of hindsight you know it's going to work out all right.

Wow, well put!
I'm just now hearing The Dissolving Room for the first few times, but I love that analogy!

I would too pay for a hard copy of this. I think SW were selling copies of this when I saw them back in June, but I ran out of money...

Jonathan, you said you may have copies somewhere? I'd really like to buy one from you somehow...PayPal?

I think the fan reaction here is encouraging the idea of a repressing of The Dissolving Room. Stay tuned for more developments!
