Live in My Basement Series – Depeche Mode

Got to listening to my stash of early Depeche Mode and ran across several Live Concert vinyls, cassettes and CDs.  After spinning my own personal concert, I figured that some enthusiasts of early Depeche Mode would also like to listen, so I thought I’d share.

All tracks are from concerts most dating 1980 – 1982.  Note that the quality is greatly mixed — some are audience recordings, some soundboards and a couple of tv or radio broadcasts.  I love hearing early and different versions of these wonderful tracks and how the band evolved before I could witness first-hand many years later!

Enjoy, leave feedback and connect if likeminded!  I will have another basement concert or two forthcoming for DM from the mid-80s; plus some other bands that I’ve been following and collecting for the last 30+ years!  Stay tuned…

Environmental Recordings around the World

A friend (thanks Zack!) forwarded me this really interesting website that plots environmental sound recordings from all over the world onto a map–making a very neat user experience.  There are quite a lot of entries and it continues to grow.  Very interesting stuff as you use the application.
