In-Depth Song Discussion: Early Home

Let's hear some love for this tune. Absoultuley love it, and would take it E1 or midset over pretty much any song Dave currently plays solo. Haunting and just beautifully done. Easily my favorite song off Batson Sessions. THIS is what a Dave lullaby/ballad should be if he's going to write them. Thoughts?

Good ideas in the song, but it needs to be completed.

This could probably make a really great full-band song. In its current form, sounds like a good E1 tune, but with some work and input from the musical director, it could be something bigger.

This was by far the song that stuck out to me the most on the Batson Sessions. I think both versions are great, but i actually enjoy the one that is more horn forward. Lyrics also really paint a picture and tell a story, but there is some ambiguity where people have argued the storyteller finds his wife in bed with another woman which is very interesting and takes the song for a different twist.

I love the horn lines and even the violin on the more completed version.
The horn lines always felt kinda Beatles-ish to me, like the song would be a throwaway track on the White Album.

Love it. It sounds like a sweet song, but then the lyrics are dark as hell. I'd love to see it busted out E1 in a show, just randomly. No warning.

One of his best writing efforts in recent memory. Would also work on piano. The stand-up bass adds a nice layer.

It would be interesting, but I’m pretty sure he says “she’d’ve had a chance to let him out the door.” One could argue all day that Dave’s mumble of that line could’ve been “her” but I don’t hear that.

Not a bad tune. Could be a cool e1, I dig the upright, horns, even Boyd. I do enjoy his storytelling outside of personal anecdote (see Hello Again), wish he’d try more of that.

I like this tune as well. The dark lyrics over the lullaby melody is a really cool touch and I like the subtle horns and strings at the end of the track. I wish the band worked on this one some more and even tried it out live. I doubt that any of these tunes will ever debut live though.

An absolute dark beauty. Paired with Drive Me Away, Red Glare, Ask, Celebrate, etc, it's perfect. Just about my favorite one from the Batson Sessions. Could have been an amazing album, really.

I love the way Boyd and the horns come in at the end as well. Believe it or not, I love the length of the tune as well. I think it works.
