A new feature I'm going to be doing is the On Tour series. Basically, I'll be putting together live albums from bootleg recordings of different artists. First off, here's Ryan Adams & The Cardinals Vol. 1. It's Vol. 1 because I could easily make 5 albums full of Ryan songs so we'll see how this one goes, I'll probably do a couple more.
All of these tracks are freely available here. Big thanks to all the tapers, Ryan's sound guys for their help and of course to Ryan for allowing the taping of his shows. It's rare for such a big name artist to allow fans to record shows from the soundboard so he should be applauded for that. He is very aware of his fanbase and keeps us in mind. For more information on all Ryan related info head over to the Ryan Adams Archive, a fantastic site for Ryan fans.
In terms of the music, every track is fantastic. I didn't do too much editing of the tracks so there won't be smooth transitions between the tracks but nothing too noticeable. Track-listing is below along with the dates and venues of the concerts. I'll be continuing this series soon with another artist but I will be returning to Ryan & The Cardinals as well as Ryan solo in the near future.
Hope you enjoy it. Download it from here
