“Automatic” in all its Acoustic Glory

Posted in response to a special request from Marc G.  

“Serve You” w Trixie (Knitting Factory, NYC 2004-09-15)

This video of Chris and daughter Trixie singing “Serve You” was originally posted to YouTube by Martin Tupper on the first anniversary of Chris’s passing (2006-11-20).  I’ve tried to contact Martin to ask whether he has more video of this show, but have never received a reply.  To make the video more easily accessible to … Continue reading

Starr Hill 2000-10-24 Playlist

Thanks to Tom Jones and Ken Dudzik for making this bootleg available!      

Jeff Lang’s Cover of “As Flat as the Earth”

  The Japanese release of Jeff Lang’s 2017 album, Alone in Bad Company, includes a bonus track:  Jeff’s cover of Chris Whitley’s “As Flat as the Earth” (Terra Incognita).  Because this recording is unavailable in the US and with Jeff’s generous permission, I am sharing it here so that ATCW group members can listen to … Continue reading

Toazted Interview

  This three-part interview seems to have been recorded after Din, which Chris discusses extensively.    

2017 ATCW Group Highlights

The thing I hate most about Facebook as a host for our group is that the now thousands of posts are presented linearly – no feature to allow the user to group posts by topic (e.g., as one would in a discussion forum), to create a chain/thread of related posts, or to easily/quickly access posts … Continue reading

Chris with Pat MacDonald in Europe (Winter 1999)

    I was pleasantly surprised when, viewing files Hiroshi Suda had sent me of 1999-02-05 (Quasimodo’s, Berlin),  I came across a video of Chris and Pat MacDonald singing Dylan’s “Billy” – still brings a smile!  Today I ran across some additional audio files of that duet plus of Pat’s solo performance.  I’m sharing them … Continue reading
