Posted - 09/26/2017 : 09:14:40 Hi shared a post on the Frank FB group of a best-of of live shows I put together on my mega account.
Here's the post: I've put together a "Best-Of" collection of live recordings of Frank Back and Frank Black & The Catholics on my mega account to share with you all. These are 90% from recordings I have collected via snail mail over the years, with a few acquired from digital sources. I haven't actually taped any of these, so all thanks to the original tapers. Many will be familiar to you as I have shared many of them on dimeadozen.org or on forum.frankblack.net over the years, but maybe there's one or two that are new.
Anyways, I originally aimed to select the best 1 or two recordings corresponding to each album and share those, but FB wouldn't let me do it how I wanted too, so now I'm simply sharing the entire folder which contains the entire lot as well as many others which have found their way onto my account over the years.
They're all in flac format, though there are some mp3 files in some of the other folders. And some are contained in folders, and others in .zip files. All depends on when I added them to my account. They're all full band gigs, apart from the McCabes show which was simply too good to leave out. It's a roughly 50/50 split of audience recordings and FM/SBD ones.
Here's the list I put together detailing the best (imo) recordings from each album period. These are all in the folder:
Frank Black: Electric Ladyland Studios, New York (1993-06-24) Tipitina's Nightclub, New Orleans (1993-07-03)
Teeanger Of The Year: Wetlands, New York (1994-06-13) Reading Festival (1994-08-26)

Frank Black & The Catholics: Galaxy, Dallas (1998-10-11) Slim's, San Francisco (1998-11-09)
Pistolero: Metro, Chicago (1999-07-06)
