^ nevermind that. just saw the link that my friend actually brought up. it...was for 6yrs ago. no wonder why it seemed strange for that kind of show to pop up out of nowhere..

.. man, whatever happened to the 'edit' function on posts..?

would love to edit myself out of existence really quick.

I feel like that soundcloud was only up for a few days several years back... I never caught it online.

Several NsN tracks were in the Make Good Choices USB companion thing, maybe 4 of them. Was the the whole thing, or were there more?

That's a lot of Sherman tanks!

I'm looking through the USB and I don't see any NSN in here. Could be I'm not sure what I'm looking for but I assume it'd be in "Bedroom Adjacent (solo piano covers)" which has the following tracks

15 Stop Breathin'
Angel From Montgomery
Baby Plays Around
Best Days
I Tried To Leave You
India Song
Last Boat Leaving
Let Tomorrow Bee
Old Man
Poor Napoleon
Sorry Somehow 1
Waiting My Turn
When I'm Out Of Town

RE: nelson sings nilsson
i was wondering about this recently too and found some youtube playlists out there with the songs. i'm still hoping to find an actual download of the tracks, though. the youtube streams are good, and i can rip them for my ipod, but there's quality loss there. just trying to get everything in the highest quality all the time!

RE: nelson sings nilsson
i could have sworn there were Nelson Sings Nilsson tracks on the USB, although it's possible I just moved the tracks I had onto it at some point.

This link contains "Daddy's Song," "Gotta Get Up," and "Miss Butter's Lament."

I also remember other Nilsson tracks popping up in various formats but I don't have anything else. I swear there was once a myspace video of him playing "Think About Your Troubles," but no luck tracking that down. Youtube does have a handful of other NSN tracks probably from the former soundcloud link.

For what it's worth, I hadn't realized that someone with original rips had uploaded to YT so for others here:

This is great, I missed the Soundcloud wayyy back and thought I'd never hear these.

Re: quality loss, probably so, but any you can find will have at some point been ripped from Soundcloud, right? I don't think anyone but Sean has an actual full quality version of the full album?

That's a lot of Sherman tanks!

RE: nelson sings nilsson
this applies in part to Nelson Sings Nilsson, although there's some crossover to other recent requests i think, and there's gotta be a few people out there who've yet to hear this great set and are also probably checking every active thread herein, so... here in this link lies a live set at Spaceland from 2007.

there are some NSN tracks, HD tracks, and other misc. Sean Nelson favorites. the album's artwork lists the artist as Sean Nelson & His Mortal Enemies which for the record i always thought was better than just plain ol' Sean Nelson. this totally fucked up my last.fm stats back in the day, but, luckily, that don't matter no more.

thanks for that set as well!

i miss last.fm. the obsessive data collector in me loved having all those statistics readily available. and every year i liked comparing my "best of" list with the numbers of what i actually listened to the most.

i wasn't sure if the initial soundcloud page allowed downloads or not. the youtube videos have a note saying something like "uploaded in HD" so it made me think the uploader had high quality files. this could all be in my head though!

FWIW, when i ripped those youtube videos the other day with an app that offers an "original" quality setting for the audio, the resulting mp3s were at 128kbps, which is not awesome. my ears and equipment are both too old to make any keen judgement, but probably fair to say that source is not CD quality. As to the original soundcloud, good point-- I have no idea, I missed it entirely when it was up.

That's a lot of Sherman tanks!

That was my recording, and the Nilsson song my request.

To my recollection, he did play Brooklyn Bridge somewhere in the middle of the set, but i had to cut it out due to a problem...
