Wow. I knew these existed but had not watched them before.
What's so special about these videos is that they are of John K Samson performing songs solo that later were released as full fledged Weakerthans song I love to see how songs develop... how their original, usually quiet and more intimate versions turn into something else later. This was filmed before Reconstruction Site was released.
A nice little glimpse into the song crafting.
