Disc 1 Is Complete -- Which Means the Whole Project Is Complete!

There's plenty happening in Sandinistaland this weekend: press clippings, another Clash tribute that in its way is almost as weird as ours, and more. I'll get to all of them shortly. But right now let's shine the spotlight on our own project. It's been roughly three years since I came up with this crazy idea and tonight -- May 29, 2006 -- I am thrilled and borderline amazed to report that every track -- all 37! -- for The Sandinista Project has been recorded and submitted. Earlier this month I posted the track listing for Disc 2. And now here's Disc 1:

1. The Magnificent Seven, Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers
2. Hitsville U.K., Katrina Leskanich
3. Junco Partner, Jon Langford and Sally Timms with Ship & Pilot
4. Ivan Meets G.I. Joe, Jason Ringenberg and Kristi Rose
5. The Leader, Amy Rigby
6. Something About England, The Coal Porters
7. Rebel Waltz, Ruby on the Vine
8. Look Here, Jim Duffy
9. The Crooked Beat, Wreckless Eric
10. Somebody Got Murdered, Matthew Ryan
11. One More Time, Haale
12. One More Dub, Haale
13. Lightning Strikes (Not Once But Twice), London Calling of Chicago
14. Up in Heaven (Not Only Here), The Smithereens
15. Corner Soul, Ethan Lipton
16. Let's Go Crazy, Storybox
17. If Music Could Talk, Steve Wynn
18. The Sound of the Sinners, Bill Lloyd

In the weeks to come I'll be posting production and other logistical updates, but let's not move to that mode yet. Right now I just want to scream at the top of my voice: WE DID IT! I am excited, exhausted, humbled, ready for the next chapter of this project to begin...
