Remembering Vic Chesnutt

You've likely heard by now that Vic Chesnutt left us over Christmas. I found a recording of my first introduction to his music, a demo version of "Mr. Reilly" that was included on a local compilation cassette called "Samizdat" in 1988.

This is actually the first time at Lestermix that I've actually linked to a song not my own that I uploaded myself. Considering that the friends who made the compilation didn't make any money and that they've made no effort to reissue it since then, I see no harm providing it, unless and until the family wishes otherwise.

Do you have the original Samizdat cassette which featured the Mr. Reilly demo? If so, I'd love to hear back from you.
