Originally recorded in ‘97 and ’98, Old Ramon is the first new Red House Painters release since 1996’s Songs for a Blue Guitar. This is a very big deal. In the interim between Old Ramon and the last RHP record, singer Mark Kozelek has somehow found the time to release two critically acclaimed solo records (on the Badman label), produce a John Denver tribute album, tour solo in the United States, UK, Spain, Sweden and South Korea, score the independent film Last Ball, and appear in Cameron Crowe’s film Almost Famous.
