Notes from the creator: Some background on this compilation:

A few years ago, an old friend turned me on to Yonder. He had seen their 2003 Belly Up show (several tracks from that gig appear in this comp) and had been downloading Yonder shows ever since. He showed me a couple boxes full of discs, which he let me borrow to take home and rip whatever I liked. I augmented his collection with some of the top rated Yonder shows on archive.org and then this monster of a project began.

I went through each of the shows and ripped any song that caught my attention. In the beginning, I listened to each cut all of the way through. But after 50 or so shows, I had already picked out several outstanding versions of many songs. At that point, I began only listening to the first minute of a song if I knew I already had a better version.

After abandoning the project a couple of times due to burn out (hey, I love Yonder – but I likes me some variety too, ya know?), I finally had reviewed all of the shows. Then I began going thru each of the ripped tracks and selected my favorite version of each song. That was the fun part – listening to great cuts, while watching this beast take shape.

Songs had to have at least fairly good sound quality to be considered. But I would always favor a great performance with fair sound over an average performance with excellent sound. I also tried to give preference to the versions that were more ëfuní than other cuts. Yonder is a really fun band and I wanted to feature that.

The result is what you have here: five volumes, each designed to fill a 3-disc jewel case with a total of 260 tracks from over 130 different shows. Over a hundred other shows were reviewed that failed to contain any tracks making the cut.

All tracks were originally downloaded from archive.org or dime. The only alteration to the sound of the tracks is that they have been normalized. Even so, they still seem to vary a bit in volume between shows. The files that were downloaded as .shn files have been converted to .wav using Shortend for Windows and then to .flac using Flac Frontend as that’s how I store my files.

The tracks appear in chronological order in an attempt to loosely document the first decade of Yonder’s life. However, I expanded that decade a bit in order to fill the 15 discs. That explains the Or So in the artwork.

Part of that expansion includes the 1st eight tracks on the 1st disc, which feature Jeff and Dave in a pre-Yonder band called the Bluegrass Holes. All of the remaining tracks are Yonder, including many with guest artists.

I shortened some of the song titles and omitted the names of the non-musical tracks on the artwork that goes on the back of the 3-CD jewel cases (back_volume_one.jpg, etc.), due to limited space. I guess that’s what they call artistic license. Anyway, below is the actual track list – to the best of my knowledge. Any corrections are welcome. I made up the names of the non-musical tracks (as well as Rare Banjo Tune and New Adam Song) in an attempt to be descriptive when no titles were available.

This comp was originally made for me and my friends, primarily as a way to save space (instead of having boxes full of discs!), but also as a way to introduce some of my friends to the band. I gave several sets out to my buddies last year for Xmas. Now, thanks to salmonella’s gracious offer to post it for me, it is also here to share with my fellow dimers. I hope you enjoy it.

But what Im also hoping is that some of you will enlighten me in the comments section of this post. Over 250 shows were considered for this set. But there are many more shows out there in circulation. If any of you listen to my picks and know a different version of a song that you like better, please speak up. This comp is by no means definitive and your suggestion might be a good way to improve it.

Now enjoy your ride thru Yonders first decade or so,

Some tracks are marked cut at end. Yonder often runs a series of songs together. This makes for some less than smooth endings when you separate out individual tracks. Did my best.Strummit = Northwest String Summit, Yonders annual 3-day party with their musical friends at Hornings Hideout, outside of Portland, OR.

Yonder’s lineup:
Adam Aijala – guitar,vocals
Ben Kaufmann – bass,vocals
Dave Johnston – banjo,vocals
Jeff Austin – mandolin,vocals
plus many guests
