Superb acoustic Richard Ashcroft show

Here is an excellent acoustic set from Richard Ashcroft (former frontman of the Verve, whose new solo album Keys To The World is getting very solid reviews, and is a frequent listen ’round these parts). Recorded March 7 of this year at a sold-out show at the Paradiso in Amsterdam. The setlist has excellent flow, and the stripped-down accompaniment really allows his voice to shine. Those who were there say it was an incredible, intimate night.

01. Intro
02. Check the Meaning
03. Break The Night With Colour
04. Music is Power
05. Sweet Brother Malcolm
06. Lucky Man
07. Words Just Get In The Way
08. Keys To The World
09. Encore Break
10. History
11. Why Not Nothing
12. Bittersweet Symphony


Ashcroft returns to the same venue in a few weeks (June 7), this time with his full band. He is currently on tour in the UK & Europe.

Thanks to Jason for sharing!

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
