  • I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive
  • Love Me

Rough mixes of both songs from this session were uploaded in May 2004 to the “Media” section of Norah’s official website as streaming non-downloadable Flash files. On January 30, 2007 they were taken down as part of the site redesign to commemorate the release of Not Too Late.

 

Notes: In October of 2003, the six members of this side project all happened to be in New York at the same time and played some shows at the Living Room to mark the occasion. They had played some of their first shows during May 2003, right before Norah would go on her first tour since the Grammys. Jim was still residing in San Francisco at the time, and so the group figured that while they were all in town they would record some covers.

The band members and producer Jay Newland convened at Magic Shop Studios, where Julian had recorded his recently released Good Life, and according to organ player Jon Dryden, 9 songs were recorded including Lefty Frizzell’s “Mom and Dad’s Waltz.” While a studio version of the song remains unreleased, it is worth noting that a below-average quality cellphone recording exists of the band performing the song at a midnight concert on June 29, 2005. In 2004, rough mixes of “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive” a Fred Rose song and “Love Me” by Elvis Presley—both from this session—were added as streams on the front page of Norah’s official website.

On the Willies’ 2006 self-titled release, “Love Me” from this session was remastered and also included on the record.
