Description

Hear the entire session and interview: http://soundcheck.wnyc.org/story/john-doe-in-studio/ John Doe has always seemed like an artist more likely to push forward to the next thing than to look back. But lately, he says he's found pleasure in seeing how far he's come since his days as the founding member of L.A. punk band X, and the country-rock band The Knitters. That reflection is now manifesting itself in a new collection, The Best Of John Doe: This Far. Compiling nearly 25 years of material, Doe includes some of his favorite concert moments, collaborations, and a few unreleased, or reworked songs. The record also features fantastic guest spots from Neko Case, Aimee Mann, Kathleen Edwards and Grant-Lee Phillips. Watch John Doe perform "The Meanest Man In The World," live in the Soundcheck studio.
