NOTE TO CT STAFF: If you receive contact regarding this video asking for it to be removed from official sources, please let me know and I will happily remove it. I don't care what those who don't want it spread think, but I am not about to jeapordise this site.

Above all, I am a crows fan, and if for any reason the band think that seeding this here is hurting them, I will remove it, no questions asked. Simple as that. The way I figure it, we might as well share it and let them officially tell us not to, rather than not share it and wonder what they would have said.........

I'm not posting this to start a fight, hurt the band or set a precedent. I'm not gonna argue with anyone about it. It will stay until either the admins or the band wants it removed.

Comments:

The famous yet rare 1999 Shim Sham Show. Audio from this show, presumably from the video source has started to slowly circulate, however the video has yet to see the light of day. This is an audience shot DVD, with good sound and vision. The show features first time performances of MPL, Four Days and some since unplayed covers - "Never Go Back", "When I win the Lottery", "Blue Eyes Cryin In The Rain", "Johnny Thunder" and "Always on My Mind".  

Audio versions of this gig have circulated, albeit in a different setlist order from what is listed here. Rest assured that this is the correct setlist in the correct order from a reliable source.

There has been a lot of speculation over the years that adam had said he was really drunk and therefore did not want this show traded. In more recent times, he has rarely mentioned the show itself, or his opinion on it being traded. The video is a relatively good audience shot, from somewhere above stage. For all the hype, the shopw is actually a little middel of the road -nothing spectacular but interesting all the same.

I note that while there has been an alleged embargo on trading the show, audio tracks of "Blue Eyes Cryin In The Rain" and "When I Win The Lottery" have been available at annabegins.com (sister site to countingcrows.com) for many many years, and the cllub at which it was filmed has long since closed.

here it is, shim sham 1999. the show. the myth. the marvel.

well i dont normally download dvds , ( slow connection speeds , kids using my computer etc , and i still like good old fashioned trading cds via post :chuckle:) , but for this one i will make an exception ,

i know its been said before the band or Adam doesnt want it in general circulation , but its been known to exist for as long as i have been trading and others have it and i believe in one rule for all !
