2009-04-xx Tour Of The Universe Tour Rehearsals/Source 2

A very good FM broadcast recording. The songs contained here are from the TOTU tour rehearsals, because Wrong and Walking In My Shoes later appeared as bonuses on the "Tour Of The Universe" DVD. The interviews were likely done around the time of the original FM broadcast date of July 10, 2009. There was then a first FM rebroadcast on September 14, 2009, and then the source for this recording was the second FM rebroadcast on December 31, 2009 as part of a "Best Of 2009" series.

Note that there is a pre-FM CD source for just the songs (plus "Come Back" which was not broadcast, and minus the interviews), which unfortunately appears to be lossy, at Source 1.

And, this same FM broadcast content was available to stream on NPR's website along with a bonus track ("Come Back"). That source was captured in its original MP3 128kbps format and split into tracks, and is available at Source 3.

Of all three sources, Source 1 (the pre-FM) is the best sounding, because it does not have any FM radio dynamic range compression applied, it seems less lossy than the 128kbps MP3 webstream version, and it has none of the slight clipping that the webstream MP3 version has.
