Seattle 2004 [no label, 2CD]

Live at Showbox, Seattle, WA; May 25, 2004. Very good soundboard.

Thanks to robgronotte for sharing the show at Dime.

robgronotte noted:

There is a tiny bit of static on and off on SOTS, but I think it was from something on the stage, not a flaw in the recording.
Apart from that the sound is pretty much perfect. The quiet songs are recorded at very low levels compared with the loud ones, so you’ll probably be adjusting the volume often, but I didn’t want to change the original dynamics of the concert by adjusting them… If
you like their “Summer Sun” album, you’re going to love this show.

The band’s tenth LP, Summer Sun, was released in 2003… When asked about the album’s quiet nature, Ira Kaplan said, “We made a decision at the last second just to leave the loud songs off. We were looking at the material we recorded and just trying to put out the best record that we could. At a certain point, we just thought it seemed right to put out the quiet ones. I’ve been aware that there’s been some surprise about that and people saying it’s even quieter than the last record, which has sort of taken me by surprise.” - wikipedia
