The Catalogue

There is an enormous amount of unreleased Ryan Adams music; now that Adams is free from his record contract we may finally hear some of it. (Speakeasy)

Though the apparent coming deluge of archival recordings is a welcome one for Adams fans, these unreleased albums are just a drop in the bucket of the dozen-plus collections that have been traded and freely (if dubiously) available online on message boards, bittorrent sites and other file-sharing networks for years — a whole alternate discography rich with some of the troubadour’s best material. As we await his next move, Speakeasy has compiled a list of six of Adams’ unreleased essentials.
