Yo La Tengo | Maxwells | Dec 6, 2007

I know I've been posting a lot of boots and particularly Yo La Tengo bootlegs lately but I've been fortunate to have friends who have shared some high quality boots with me. This one is no exception.

This show is the third night of YLT's eight night run at Maxwells during Hanukkah to raise money for various charities. The charity for this night was Day One.

Here's why the show is worth posting: besides a fine setlist with lots of covers and special guests mixed in, the sound quality of this recording is as good as a professionally released live album. It's actually a matrix of two audience recordings and a soundboard recording. So, you get the clarity of the soundboard with the better mix and overall atmosphere of the audience recordings. It's great and a treat for any YLT fan.

You can read a review of the show over on extrawack.

Thanks. Just FYI, disk 1, track 10 appears to be missing (track numbers skip from 9 "No Water" to 11 "I Wanna Be Your Lover."

The missing track is just a quiet break between songs. There isn't any banter. So, I chose to not post it.

Have you posted (or heard) their live cover of Like a Rolling Stone? Conor Oberst takes lead vocals and it's freaking electric.

Wow, that's fact it sounds better than when I heard it live with my noise-limiting earplugs in!
