For the record, anyone going to this tour is a lucky bastard. Still haven't gotten to see Josh live but I love all of his records.

I loved his last record (that was kind of my gateway to Josh) and then I picked up his earlier stuff and the new record is fantastic as well.

For anyone in the NYC area: Josh is also playing a free show on Governor's Island on August 8th. Sucks that it's a Sunday night, but it'll be well worth it. Dude puts on a fantastic show. Saw him all three times he played here in May.

Start kind of in the middle, I'd say. The Animal Years is probably the most highly-acclaimed of his records, so I'd start there. Epic songs--one of them (Thin Blue Flame) is 9:30+ and it's one of the few songs that long that can keep my attention throughout.

The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter was my gateway album. It's a lot fuller of a sound than The Animal Years, less stripped down. The new one (So Runs the World Away) is about midway between the two albums in terms of tempo and style.

There were 3 albums before The Animal Years that I recommend checking out as well.
