Counting Crows have announced the launch of their new download site, LiveCountingCrows.com where you can download every show they play from 28th of July onwards. Unfortunately that’s too late for either the Ambassador or Oxegen performances from this year, but when they play the O2 Point in December, it’ll be on there.
The downloads cost $9.95 for 128kbps mp3, seriously guys, make it 320kbps or V2 or V0 or something, better quality is needed. But I suppose that’s why they want you to spend 3 dollars more to buy the FLAC. You can also get the CD (not sure if Irish shipping is available) for a robbery of $21.
But the reason I’m highlighting this is because the first ten thousand members of the site (that hasn’t been reached yet) can download the 28th of July 2008 at the Verizon Amphitheater in Charlotte, NC. Get it soon, because 10,000 isn’t all that much for a US-based site.
And from me, here’s a live recording of ‘Rain King’ with a ‘Thunder Road’ interpolation from a few years back:
