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.

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

Thanks!
Charles Fontaine
