Alright, I couldn’t wait to post this…I managed to find a complete recording of Jeff Mangum’s Saturday night show in Toronto last month, which I attended and wrote about in a previous blog. As I mentioned, Saturday night was a bit louder (Jeff encouraged us to sing), so you’ll have to deal with some crowd noise here…but everyone is generally respectful during the songs. There was also more interaction with the crowd in general on the second night.
I don’t know who recorded this, so I can only give credit to Google and Mediafire, but I’d be happy to acknowledge the original taper if they stepped forward. (Edit 10/4/11: Credit goes to Danielle, who commented that she recorded this. Thanks Danielle!) Security at the venue made it quite clear that any kind of audio or video recording would get you escorted out, so this was a brave move. The acoustics in the church were amazing, so I imagine anyone with a smartphone could have made a decent recording, which this certainly is.
The songs are all split, neatly tagged, and wrapped up in a ZIP file for you below.
P.S. This is spiritual.
