before bying this record, id never even heard of daniel johnston, i bought it purely through reading about this compilation that was being put together by some of my favorite groups such as eels, sparklehorse and the starlight mints, to highlight the career of a forgotten songwriter.
the covers cd is pretty good with some good takes of daniels songs, however the real gem here is the cd of his originals.. all i can say is pure class in lo-fi, the songs are full of honesty, comedy, tragedy and life, all weaved into daniels sureal imaginative world. favorites for me are dont let the sun go down on your grevience, walking the cow and story of an artist....
if your looking for some inspiration and originality, dont pass this one buy , for me its in a class of its own.

A couple of weeks ago I knew nothing about Daniel Johnston, but fortunately I caught a track from the Discovered Covered album on the radio. Seems I've been missing over 20 years worth of great song writing.
Daniel Johnston is still around (despite the "late" in the title) and making music and art. His style is a mixture of country, blues, rock and brutal honesty. Many of the original songs were recorded at home on a cheap cassette player. I've heard better sound quality from tracks made in the 1930's, but that's part of the joy of this album. It's the song that's important. They are by turn beautiful, ugly and disturbing: Daniel hasn't always been well and this comes through in his work.
You also get an disc of cover version by some famous people. I'll probably get round to listening to that eventually.
I've read that if this album sells enough, Daniel will get to buy his own house for the first time in his life. Think of that as you press the Add To Shoping Basket button. Go on, do yourself and Daniel a favour - buy this now.

An alternative legend. Couldn't sing and couldn't play guitar but lyrics and songs that coax the angels from heaven. The cover CD is great too showing how good his songs are by could we say 'accomplished' musicians.

The covers are mostly of a high quality, occasionally superseding the originals, which are however mostly in a league of their own. The collection of songs is a great introduction to the man. And a great idea to include both covers and originals.
