Sunday night Counting Crows bootleg listening

setlists with Adam Duritz

In honor of a completely amazing evening that I spent yesterday with Adam Duritz (pictured partially above, and no — I haven’t stopped smiling yet), I went back tonight and re-uploaded one of my favorite live recordings ever of Counting Crows.

In August of 1993, they played the new AAA Records & Radio Convention at Boulder’s Fox Theatre. I talked to Adam about it last night and he remembers that show fondly. You can read my story about this show and download the soundboard recording by following the link below, but know I wore this cassette tape out then, and in listening to it again tonight it still holds all that magic in it for me.

Oh! And if you happen to be in NYC this week for CMJ, check out Adam’s three-day, free Outlaw Roadshow, in conjunction with my friend Ryan over at Ryan’s Smashing Life blog! I would go if I could.


  • Open invitation to any Fuel / Friends readers in NY or those heading to CMJ, The Outlaw Roadshow is amazing – would love to see you! Details: http://www.theoutlawroadshow.com

    And we love Heather!

  • The new iTunes download was giving me weird errors, so getting this transferred to my library took something in the neighborhood of…hours. But it’s working now. And I downloaded the fall mix today, too. Excited for a mellow fall listening evening, at last!

  • I was addicted to a bootleg Counting Crows show from Italy, 1994, that I bought on Bleeker Street in NYC for a very long time. I think I’d still have it in my top 10 albums if I was stuck on a desert island. Here is a link with the track list.
    Best “Goodnight Elizabeth” I’ve ever heard. There is something so genuine about this show that made me fall in love with these guys. And yet, over almost 20 years, whenever they are in my town, I am not, and I still haven’t seen them live :(

"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."
—Hunter S. Thompson

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.
