The Jayhawks - 1998-12-31 - State Theatre, Minneapolis, MN

The Jayhawks
December 31, 1998
State Theatre, Minneapolis, MN

(Opening for Soul Asylum)
Soundboard recording, excellent quality
Available in both Lossless (FLAC) and mp3 (320 k) versions

Here's some more from The Jayhawks, from a few years later. This is a great quality soundboard recording from a New Year's Eve show from their hometown in support of their Sound of Lies (1997) album. So, this was after Mark Olson left, and Gary Louris (with new guitarist Kraig Johnson) took the band a bit more toward a rock-oriented direction (and less country). This is evident right from the start of this show, with a more hard-rock-edged performance of their biggest hit 'Waiting for the Sun' (compare this with the 1995 performance from the previously posted show to hear the difference). Overall, a very good show. Note: they were opening for fellow Minneapolis band and their good friends Soul Asylum here. However, I have not been able to find a recording of the Soul Asylum portion of this show, although it must exist somewhere. Anyone have or know where to get a recording of Soul Asylum's set?

Thanks, one of my favorite bands. 20+ year fan. Seen them with and without Mark. Awesome either way.
Just a great great band with limited success. A pity really. Just shows the state of music and the industry these days I guess.
