4.0 out of 5 stars raw, unabashed songwriting February 23, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album captures a summer of musicality in the life of a young, unabashed songwriter. After watching "The Devil in Daniel Johnston" I was compelled to pick up some of his music. His work is extremely raw and revealing. There is a level of intimacy seldom conveyed in recorded music. It is not something that you would or could listen to constantly but it is powerful while you do. My emotional response when listening has ranged from outright joy to subtle embarrassment. Again, you will inevitably be taken aback by the vulnerability in the music, especially on tracks like "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Your Grievances" where an upbeat Daniel encourages "everyone" to join in although he is most likely alone in his sister's garage pounding out the tune on a toy organ. Not for everyone but very important to some.

I 1st remember hearing Daniel Johnston back in the early 1990s when I'd hear this local radio station play "Speeding Motorcycle", "Don't Let the Sun Go Down...", etc. At first, I didn't know what to make of him. BUT, just listening to the incredibly great lyrics, I knew he was up there on the "cult figure" status board. I also recall hearing, around the same period, hearing Yo La Tengo's cover version of "Speeding Motorcycle", which, they'd polished up a bit, slowed down a tad, but, it was still recognizable as Daniel's great tune. Also, in that era, that semi-documentary, directed by Larry something or other, film called KIDS - remember that one anyone? It was this sort of depressing docu-drama but without any real substance, just kind of going around, filming various young people who were living on the street -runaways, kids kicked out of home, or even kids who had a home but spent all their time w/the aforementioned kids - a bunch of strung-out junkie kids (these were kids in the 15-17 or 18 y/o range) - anyway, the soundtrack was WAY better than the film! I recall having the s/t a long time ago & while I don't recall everything on it, the 2 best tunes that were on it (I don't know if there was any original songs on there, just songs that were licensed from the bands or their labels to be on this s/t) were "Spoiled" by Sebadoh, from their awesome album, entitled "III" and they also had Daniel Johnston's "Casper the Friendly Ghost".
Anyway, that is just a kind of trip down memory lane for ya - but, although YIP! JUMP MUSIC was released in 1983, I am not sure, but, I believe he got more and more attention (plus, he'd done more albums too, since) in the late 80s, early-mid 90s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cobain loved it too, for what that's worth October 14, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
Probably a lot. So, near the end, Kurt Cobain wrote in his journal that this was one of his favorite albums. Can't argue. As evidenced on Incesticide, one of Cobain's great talents was recognizing the emotional wallop a song could convey either within or without it's original context. To me, it's unquestionable that these songs are worthy of being elevated like Molly's Lips or Son of a Gun, but I'm not so sure you need a cover by a brand name act to recognize that. Casper and Don't Let the Sun Go Down are an easy couple of singles to add into your rotation, and they'll only grow on you because there's not much out there that is going to remind you of this.

Sorry to name drop, but it might gather a little more attention, and this music is worth it. Emotionally direct and catchy like the Dickens.
