Third Man Records

In September of 2017, Josh Tillman stopped by the Nashville headquarters of Third Man Records on an otherwise ordinary Tuesday afternoon and surprised them all with a lunchtime solo, acoustic set before his sold-out Ryman Auditorium performance. They, of course, had their 1955 Scully Lathe warmed at the ready to capture the occasion.

As is typical for direct-to-acetate recordings in the Blue Room, Josh warmed up the room (and the TMR engineers) with two songs before they started cutting the LP. He began with the debut performance of his newly penned “Mr. Tillman” (foreshadowing its release as the first single on God’s Favorite Customer 9 months later). They then used the second song as an opportunity to carve a 12” on-the-spot single of “Now I’m Learning to Love the War,” which was promptly handed it to a lucky attendee for safe keeping. If you want to know more about that, you’ll have to scour the depths of FJM’s fan net.

Live at Third Man Records covers songs from all three Father John Misty albums out at the time of its recording, heard here stripped totally bare.

A1. I Love You, Honeybear

A2. I’m Writing a Novel

A3. Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings

A4. Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins)

B1. So I’m Growing Old on Magic Mountain

B2. Holy Shit

B3. Everyman Needs a Companion
