A very good pre-FM broadcast recording. Unlike the other sources, it does not include the interviews present in the FM rebroadcast capture and original webstream capture.

Unfortunately, spectral analysis and auCDtectTaskManager's results suggest that this source has been subjected to lossy-encoding. However, in my opinion, out of the three sources, this one still offers the best sound quality. It lacks the FM radio dynamic range compression applied in the other versions and appears to be less lossy than the 128kbps MP3 webstream version. Additionally, it doesn't suffer from the slight clipping present on that one.

It's worth noting that there is an FM rebroadcast capture of this source, featuring interviews with the band interspersed between the songs, is available at Source 2.

Furthermore, the FM broadcast content, along with Come Back as an web-only outtake, was streamable on NPR's website. This source was captured in its original MP3 128kbps format and split into tracks, and can be found as Source 3.


You can listen to this entire recording below. Note that the original source appears to be lossy, so sound quality may be noticeably diminished compared to the original files that you can download in the archive below.
