this weeks song is yet another demo from the urban hymns sessions. it´s called 'lord i´ve been trying' and it was mentioned as a possible track for richards solo album but somehow was discarded (can you believe that?). it´s a streaming mp3 and the song is fantastic. if you have troubles playing it you should visit www.real.com and download their latest realplayer.

added the dotmusic review of the v2000 performance. for a further collection of reviews (external links though) you should visit the 'on your own' site. there you can also find a fine collection of articles. good work ezra and si!
