Colin Meloy Sings Live 2x Vinyl LP
Meloy's 2006 solo acoustic tour is documented on Colin Meloy Sings Live!, which Jealous Butcher Records will release as gatefold double LP.
Included on Sings Live! are songs from Meloy's first band, Tarkio, as well as cuts from every Decemberists full-length pre-The Crane Wife. There is also a tune from the 2006 EP Picaresqueties, two previously unreleased originals ("Dracula's Daughter" and "Wonder"), bits of covers of songs by the Smiths, R.E.M., Pink Floyd, and Fleetwood Mac, and a traditional folk song in debt to Shirley Collins' arrangement.
Squished in between all these goodies are stage banter interludes.
