Jim O'Rourke - Bad Timing (1997)

A gorgeous, surprisingly straightforward album of raga-like, fingerpicked acoustic guitar-based instrumentals from experimental music icon Jim O'Rourke. Fleshed out here and there by piano, organ, vibraphone, French horn, trumpet, violin, and pedal steel.

Track listing:
1. There's Hell in Hello, But More in Goodbye
2. 94 the Long Way
3. Bad Timing
4. Happy Trails

They brought me here cause I can't take care

  1. Ahh what a great album this is. O'rourke was an excellent songwriter once upon a time.

  2. Thank you. This stuff works very well for me.
