Does anyone happen to have gotten a duplicate of disc 9? In my box set there was a duplicate of disc 8 and no 9.
Priotian
I like the hidden track the best. Its also a test to see who actually listened all the way through. It wasnt performed on the night.
Jonide
Can anyone confirm whether or not they change the song up at all during the performance?
Haralem
It does change slightly, sometimes the drums drop out but over all the core of the song is always there. Matt does start to cry towards the end. I think it gets better around the 4 hour mark.
Sorryyy
no, same song for 6 hours at the actual performance
Modar
Jesus christ. Everyone wants to rip me off :)Thought this joke stopped with Lou Reeds Metal Machine :)
Bodwyn
What's your favourite track on here? Personally mine is "Sorrow".
Thetath
why . . . . . .

I saw a video of this performance at the Art Institute of Chicago. I have been looking for a DVD of it, but apparently it doesn't exist. As silly as it seems, it's mesmerizing, and after watching them play the song like 10 times I still wasn't bored. Not sure I'd buy the vinyl though, the visual component was so important, and getting just the vinyl doesn't make much sense to me...
Chi
jesus christ.
Aradwyn
I'd actually be interested in listening to this if it got a digital release.
Andromathris
I'd disagree; I think more people are interested in collecting this than actually listening to it all the way through. I'm interested in both, but one isn't as financially feasible for me.
Drelajurus
Pretty sure they wouldn't manage to sell these at all if there was a digital version. Maybe it might get one after selling out, if ever.
Rollers from Abdun
I listened to my vinyl copy a few days ago. Started at 5 pm and got done around 11:30 pm after going the gas station and bathroom breaks. It was really interesting. Though I will admit having to flip from side to side 18 times was kind of a annoying after awhile knowing I was just going to hear the same song again. Overall it was an awesome experience.
Wohald
It's just funny to me... "let's perform the same song over and over again so many times that it becomes reductive, transparent, non-existent, like saying 'Earth' a bunch of times, let's do that for Six Hours, then we'll stamp it to eighteen sides of colorless vinyl, stick them in a featureless clear acrylic box containing nothing of any consequence, and attempt to sell it for $200." Selling the essence of nothingness at an insane cost!

"All profits from the release go toward Partners in Health".
Uanabimo
The show wasn't conceptualized by the band themselves but Ragnar Kjartansson. Also, 4AD sells it for $150
GEL
Track M71 is where it's at.
Talvinl
That cough on M71. Epic. Life changing. Highlight of the record.
Unereel
I'm really stoked to have bought this. Got it waaaaaay cheaper directly from 4AD than any other place like Amazon and so forth.
Enone
I've seen other recent releases being available first at artist or label sites and later on Amazon, like the recent Run the Jewels reissue or the new They Might Be Giants vinyl
Celak
That's what I thought too. The one on Amazon isn't being released until sometime in July. Regardless I'm confused as to why it's there
Rainshaper
Didn't notice it was on Amazon... I thought it was exclusive to 4AD's store?
Cel
This is one of the most hilarious releases I've ever seen.
Alexandra
Never in my life would've expected to read a phrase such as "Matt starts crying on Q5" in a valid context
Quinthy
Certainly is...
Qwne
At least it's for charity
