9/10 Brian Staff review, 14 November 2006
a treat for sure must be this DANIEL JOHNSTON tribute album on Second Shimmy (the successor to legendary US indie Shimmy Disc), with some wonderful arrangements of the eccentric ones most loved tunes by the likes of Joy Zipper, Kramer, Dot Allison, Mike Watt, The Electric Ghosts, Kimya Dawson & Jad Fair, not to mention a host of other obscure & equally wonderful luminaries. Notable is the Grandaddy-esque 'Worried Shoes' by Daniel Smith & Sufjan Stevens, officially the best song I've heard today. Elsewhere Joy Zipper's 'Held the Hand' is a beautiful acoustic lament. There's a tender love in these 21 tunes, for the childlike maverick's opuses to the Devil, God & death itself are treated with eclectic reverence here. Probably the most significant & touching CD released this month!
