Misc. Audience Recordings
Variable sound quality, generally good to very good
mp3 @ 192 kbps

For my last entry in this mini-tribute to under-appreciated piano-based rock, I give you... Neil Young? Ok, So, Neil is not exactly known as a piano guy, and is much more known for his searing guitar leads than his keyboard work. But, Neil has been known to do some very interesting piano interpretations of his songs from time to time. Anyway, this is a fan compilation that has been around for quite awhile (covering from 1970-1992) and I thought this would be a good opportunity to post it. I have posted several other Neil compilations and this fits right in (Followers of this blog probably figured that I would find a way to bring this back around to Neil sooner or later, right?). So, this is a very good compilation with some unusual arrangements of some familiar songs as well as some obscure songs. So, Remember this was compiled a while ago from older tapes, so the sound quality varies, and also, because of its age, unfortunately does not include some later very good piano renditions (most notably from the 1999 solo acoustic tour). I got this from BigO Worldwide awhile back, but was originally compiled by long-time rusty, Shawn McCorkle, so thanks to them for making this available.

good neil/ben folds posts...freddy mercury was also great on the piano...

one question for you: i have the perfect echo volumes 1-4 already. i see that you have posted 5-6 in FLAC....

have you seen posted anywhere else where links are still live that i can find plain mp3 and not flac?



BBKron said...

Since I got obtained vols 5&6 as FLAC, that's how I posted them. But I do believe these links are still good for mp3 versions of 5 & 6. however, it might be at a relatively low bit rate (128 kbps?). These links originally came from the blog I got some of the early volumes there quite awhile back, before I got higher quality ones.
If password required, use
If these don't work, may need to download the FLAC and convert to mp3.
