Underground, underground, underground. We all stay underground. Well not this one.

An elusive proshot counting crows show, this DVD captures the band after their #1 billboard release of “Recovering The Satellites”, their second album. This is from the days when Duritz was at his rockin’ best, Matt still had long hair and the boys were still a “rock” band. Recorded at the Blockbuster Pavillion in Devore, CA, Duritz muses that they are so close to home, and how all his friends have attended the show specially. He comments that it is “almost like home”, and how after around a year of touring, he’s ready to do just that – go home. The band are at their absolute sharpest here, with Dan and Dave B particularly sharp on guitars (remember when Bryson used to play solo’s??!!). Charlie is in the zone the whole gig, and Matt just does what Matt does, he kills it. Ben on drums is a great reminder of the driving force that bought the band from “August” to “Recovering” at the beat of a drum.

The video itself is completely proshot. It is the entire gig, and also includes “A Murder of One” which has not previously circulated as audio. Part of this video (notably, “Raining In Baltimore”) has been available for download from annabegins.com and gives special thanks to “raindv” and “ehud lazine”. I did not get this video from either of these people, but if they filmed/acquired it somehow, then I do, of course, give them their dues. There are some parts in the show where the video seems to “speed up”, however nothing ever seems to go outta sync.

9 years after this was recorded, it has surfaced. A good reminder of how persistent traders who are not part of “the inner circle” or part of “the underground” can still come up with the goods………..

I guess these shows can’t stay underground forever………

FUCK THE UNDERGROUND

Rob

p.s. this is probably the rarest show I have ever seeded. i will NOT be re-seeding it, so hang onto it, and share with everyone. I full expect this to probably become the most popular seed on CT, and I hope it encourages others to share the rare stuff they have. I haven;t seeded anything in a while, so i'm bringing ou tthe big guns. I wanna hear what everyone thinks.

due thanks to the person who got this to me. they know who they are. and a big hello to all those who thought this would never surface. you also know who you are

"hey, look at the moon"

Yeah i just want you all to know that Rob has worked very hard to get these rare DvDs. So i would like to see every one that leeches to hit the thankyou button. I know how hard it is to get rare stuff so please do this and that way you will encourage more people to seed stuff. There are some other Great DVDs yet to be seeded here so stay Tuned. Also please leave your torrents open and help others when needed!

Regards

We girls like rare things you know!

And hopefully I'll be able to help seed it when I'm done and get my ratio over 1!

Wow Rob, by just looking at the setlist I get nervous. It seems to be the best setlist from that time, that I have seen up till now.

Can't wait to throw that in my dvd player and nearly kill my amp.

Thanks a lot for sharing that jewel.

Wow, so I thought this would take a day or two to download but apparently Rob's got a freaking subway coming out the back of his computer.  :cool:

Excellent work, sir, and many thanks.
