Just a quick note to let you guys know to hurry up and visit the amazing boot blog The Captain's Dead and grab some of the amazing live recordings he has up there before he scrubs his storage space and they are gone. I would start with this sick, sick audio of My Bloody Valentine's triumphant return to NYC at the Roseland last September and work your way from there.
Among the other great recordings these guys have up include Keith Richards' Complete Honeymoon Tapes, a sick Replacements show from Dekalb, IL at the Duke Ellington Ballroom in 1985, Tom Waits' demos for his 1993 black box theater classic The Black Rider and a batshit good June of 44 show from Kentucky circa 1995.
Get over there!
