Doing any sort of list for Ryan Adams is a complicated mess. The guy has so many different albums it’s hard to compile them in any sort of comprehensive list. There’s the music he made with the Cardinals, his dozens of B-sides, his unreleased albums and bootleg albums. Since I’ve done Cardinals albums and posted many unreleased tracks…I thought I’d go back to his solo work since this is the first solo album in years. Well…as long as you don’t count Orion.
