LOST BLUES & OTHER SONGS is a collection of B-sides and rarities.
Palace Music includes: Will Oldham, Todd Brashear, Liam Hayes, Rian Murphy, Bob Nastanovitch, Ned Oldham, Paul Oldham, David Pajo.
By 1997, Will Oldham was ready to cast off the Palace mantle and pursue a solo career, but not before leaving fans with this unforgettable memento. LOST BLUES is basically a collection of b-sides and alternate versions of Palace songs, but instead of a being a batch of leftovers, it's as definitive as the "best-of" collection Oldham is far too iconoclastic to ever consider.
The early single "Ohio River Boat Song" represents the band's tradition-minded beginnings. The Mekons-penned "Horses" stands as a testament to Palace's development into an honest-to-goodness rock band. "West Palm Beach" and "Gulf Shores" shared sides of a later 45, and they document Oldham's rise to lo-fi folk-rock poet king, occupying a unique place in the '90s indie-rock world. LOST BLUES is a perfect legacy for a band too mercurial to pin down and too important to forget.
