Country EP / Anaïs Mitchell & Rachel Ries / (2008)

Anaïs and I made this record quick & dirty at the end of a tour a few years ago.  We were all warmed up so lined up a fine little band of Boston musicians and made this record; one we had excitedly conspired to make the year prior.  See, we each had some homeless songs; songs that hadn't made it onto other albums because they just didn't fit in.  But in one giddy night we realized we could make them all live together, along with our friend Louis' perfect country song, on a cute little 7" (with accompanying CD) for all time.  And we called it good!

1. O My Star! (A. Mitchell)
2. MGD (R. Ries)
3. Come September (A. Mitchell)
4. Grace the Day (R. Ries)
5. When You Fall (L. Ledford)
