bending collection (24 discs total!) of Radiohead rarities...B-sides, demos, live cuts, remixes, alternate takes......you name it. Obviously I haven't listened to all of it yet, but just look at the track lists below and you'll certainly see there are some (many) gems here.
As I've insinuated before, certain bands have a rep for not wanting their music shared.....a partial list includes Corrosion of Conformity, Green Day, Sublime, Bratmobile, Robert Fripp, and others......not making any allegations here, simply that if you want this, you MAY wish to act quickly.....I've never had an issue with Radiohead before, I have never posted any of their "official" material, and this continues the trend.....still, be aware of what I say.
This is but part one (of two) of this, whomever compiled this REALLY DOES "tower above the rest" as far as producing a complete labor of love......thanks to the creator, and thanks to Jon S. for sharing. Part 2 likely tomorrow.
This is just 1/2 of the mammoth Towering Above The Rest Compilation, a fan made collection of b-sides, rarities, live tracks, and re-mixes. From what I've seen this was created around 2004, after Hail To The Thief and before In Rainbows, but a song from the most current release originally debuted in 1995 so it really doesn't matter. Honestly, I doubt I'll ever listen to all of this and it will take some sifting but there are plenty of gems to be found. As for the absolute completists: today is your lucky day!
