Paul Simon & Sting - 2014-03-13 - Washington DC

Paul Simon & Sting
2014-03-13
Verizon Center, Washington, DC

Audience recording (taper:whitenite), very good quality
Mp3 (320kbps) files

Since the previous collaboration tour posts were popular, let's keep with that theme. Here's Sting again, from a couple years ago, when he teamed up with Paul Simon, for a similar type tour to the one he recently did with Peter Gabriel, with a collaborative theme, performing many of their songs together, as well as each doing some short sets separately. It makes for some interesting versions of each of their songs. Of the half dozen or so shows from this tour (2014 US tour) I have heard, this is the best quality and sounding audience recording I know of. So, enjoy Paul & Sting on this enjoyable trip through their greatest hits, with just a bit of a difference. After this successful US tour, Paul & Sting set out for europe & the rest of the world in 2015, of which there also are several nice shows available. Note:For those partial to lossless, although I don't have this one in FLAC, I know that it is available out there if you look around for it. Perhaps later I'll post an update in lossless if I run across the files.

Neil Young (solo acoustic) - 1999-04-27 - University of Akron, Akron, OH

Neil Young (solo acoustic)
April 27, 1999
Edwin J. Thomas Hall, University of Akron,
Akron, OH

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

In the process of getting the previous post (NY, 1999-05-29-Austin) as a request for blog reader (Ted), we determined that he had one of Neil's 1999 shows that I did not have, so he sent it to me. And since it also is a very good recording, and I have not seen this show available elsewhere, here it is for all to enjoy. Like all the shows from this remarkable acoustic tour, it features a very eclectic setlist, with many Neil songs rarely heard in concert elsewhere (certainly not a greatest hits set by any means). I have recordings from a couple dozen of these 1999 shows, and each one is uniquely interesting and entertaining. So, here's some more acoustic Neil from the 1999 shows, and one that I hadn't heard before getting this from Ted. So, thanks for this one, Ted.
