Hey all,

I also have the full ~17 hour set tracked out as a nice FLAC fileset that is labeled nicely and I'd like to share that too.

the flow to this is also terrible

split up the TLW versions as nice little haunting reminders over the whole set

you've also mislabelled (maybe reddit's fault) what is clearly Sit Down Stand Up

SIDE B - THE SOLO SIDE (1 hour, 34 minutes):

This sort of categorisation is exactly what makes TOWERING ABOVE THE REST such a chore to listen to: corralled from Excel, no respec for the tunes and their flow

Fuckin dirge this man, I mean

15. Silly Voices [found sound]
16. Touchies + Feelies
17. Ed's French Loop
18. August
19. The Cupboard Monster
20. My New Clothes (take 1)
21. radio chaser noises
22. Airbag Intro (rehearsal fragment 1)
23. Airbag Groove (rehearsal fragment 2)
24. Airbag (soundcheck, 1996-04-03 Minneapolis) (fragment)
25. Airbag (early rehearsal, take 2)

...you're not on fucking Wikipedia dude, this is going in your ears
Not a fucking catalogue
Holy shit is this ever the worst way to listen to this stuff

These're still pretty essential



I love the band then. Freewheeling. No pressure but what they want. Seems many songwriters have an initial flush of writing, and it's diminishing returns foreverafter.


Not Are Thom. Flourishing here. The band sound shit hot. Gawd, I love the jam stuff
