Bill Frisell has a new release out today called Guitar in the Space Age (pictured above) but amidst that news is something even more mind blowing. This past Sunday, Frisell and James McNew (Yo La Tengo) performed the Grateful Dead’s “Dark Star > Comes A Time” at a small cultural center in Seattle for just five bucks. The 56-minute performance has caught on like wildfire amongst the music trading community and we highly recommend you give it a listen.
Download the lossless via the BitTorrent file on etree.org here. Happy listening and a huge thank you to Steve Kennedy-Williams for taping and getting this uploaded so quickly. Please check out his site as he has a bunch of high-quality recordings that you should check out.
