ontario live.
there's only one recording of it out there (bottom of the hill 2002), right?

I think that was the first show I downloaded, along with the 13/06/2006 Bottom of the Hill show. I fell into a nap to them and woke up again on Sail On. I just love that version of Ontario.
There's also [url=http://www.nyctaper.com/?p=943]this[/url] one, nyctaper did it at the Ethical Culture Hall, March last year. On last.fm people have been listening to a "ontario (live)" that is a different length than either of these, don't know if that's a different version or a different cut.

A copy of a recording of Zoop #2.

Why's everyone in this thread a f***ing Mountain Goats fan?!

That full band studio version of The Coroner's Gambit that got scrapped is pretty much number one on my fantasy playlist.

According to folks "in the know" it was scrapped because, (in not so many words,) the bigger band kinda sucked.

I would love CCTTST, as far as released stuff goes.
As far as live stuff goes, I know John's humble description of this, but I would love to hear the tMG / Neutral Milk Hotel show. John says he played a short set, and that NMH only played early comp tracks, but I still win that one because I LIKE the early comp tracks.

You mean the one done big-band style called "The Crooner's Gambit?"

Ah! I forgot about that. TCG recorded w/ the Fallen Men. I would roll an infant down a flight of stairs to hear that.

I just found that in a record store in Wilmington, NC recently for twenty-five cents. I was pretty stoked.

I'm pretty new to collecting so I'm still filling in most of the pre-4AD stuff (and most of the limited post-4AD stuff). In particular, though, I really want a copy of Come Come to the Sunset Tree for the romantic reasons above and the Jam Eater Blues single just because I love that song.

Is this whole show publicly available? Can't find it on archive.org, and I'd rather have the full set than a single song.

Oh actually come to think of it, I have a few tracks from the "John Darnielle said it was OK to steal these songs" package (what's the deal with that, anyway?) labelled as being from a Jan 27, 1999 show at the Cat's Cradle. Anyone know if the rest of that show is around anywhere?

Yeah it's out there. I'm not exactly sure where, but if you have trouble finding it let me know. I'm not on my computer or I'd upload it now. It's a great show.
Re: What Elusive Mountain Goats Item Do You Desire Most?

Yeah, it's not on archive.org, and a google search didn't come up with anything. It would be wonderful of you if you could upload it sometime!

And one more question, since my googling about it ended up at your post history here (ha): I have a 1997 show in Madison but not the date and it looks like there were two Madison shows that year. Starts with Take a Letter Maria and ends with Going to Bolivia. Any idea of the date/venue?

Thanks for any help!

Blackliner seems to be the expert on these things. I found the show on soulseek.

Sorry I don't have any more info on the show from Madison (besides it being from '97). Hopefully someone else will. I'll try to listen closely for any clues that might give away which it would.

Kaytree, did you get my email?
