Lucinda Williams and Johnny Cash contribute "Buick Blues" and "Wichita Lineman," tracks that appear on the LP versions of their respective latest albums. The Jayhawks chime in with "Falling Star," a track from the group's hard-to-find 1986 self-titled debut, as well as "Fools on Parade," from the limited-edition version of their latest album, "Rainy Day Music." Whiskeytown's "Choked Up" is an outtake from the group's swan song, "Pneumonia," while band principal Ryan Adams serves up "Rosalie Come and Go," a bonus track on limited editions of his 2002 album "Gold."
Nebraska indie rock act Bright Eyes recorded "Trees Get Wheeled Away" specifically for the "Lost & Found" compilation. UnAmerican's "Sometimes" is culled from the U.K. band's forthcoming Lost Highway debut, "Sometimes." Topping off the set are two songs recorded live in New York: Kathleen Edwards' "Hockey Skates" and Willie Nelson's "I Didn't Come Here (And I Ain't Leavin')."
The label plans to continue the series with "Lost & Found -- Vol. II," which it hopes to release in 2004.
