Murder Ballads (7" Single)

Originally released as a limited edition of 1000. It is long out of print

Neko Case and The Sadies got together for this little tip of the hat to the time honored country music trope of the murder ballad.

Full Description

Recorded in the same studio as the Old 97's Wreck Your Life, on a winter's day in Chicago. Neko Case and The Sadies got together for this little tip of the hat to the time honored country music trope of the murder ballad.

Neko's song is a creepy masterpiece.  The Sadies, when we asked them if they knew any murder ballads, said laconically "yeah" and promptly knocked out their side in 2 or 3 takes and never stopped looking cool.

"Little Sadie" is available digitally and on the compilation Making Singles, Drinking Doubles.

A different version of "Gunspeak" appears on the Sadies debut CD Precious Moments

Neko's A-side is, sadly, out of print.
