Golden Smog
April 18, 1996
Cat's Cradle, Carrboro, NC

Soundboard/Audience matrix recording, good quality
Available in both lossless (FLAC) and mp3 (320 kbps) versions

Here's more from Golden Smog, this one a couple years earlier, on their first real tour, promoting their first full-length album, Down By the Old Mainstream. It features a mix of their original songs and some choice covers, including songs from Bowie, The Stones, Neil Young, Brian Wilson, Elvis Costello/Nick Lowe, and even Charlie Rich). If you are at all a fan of alt.country, country-rock, Wilco, The Jayhawks, or bands of that kind, you definitely need to check out Golden Smog. Great stuff that generally flew under the radar of most people (including me) for a long time.
