I have an idea, just checking if you are with me or not.

I have collected almost all available Smashing Pumpkins concerts that were recorded, it must be like close to 700 in total now. I always love to listen to the looooong epic songs of 10 minutes or longer, with the quiet moments, with the raging moments, with the rants, with the screams, with the guitars, with the drums, with the introspective poetry of Billy… well, there is a lot to enjoy in those songs. What if I pick my best epic live song from each year (1989/1990 till 2000 + 2007 & 2008), and provide a MP3 download here? Would that be appreciated?

Nice idea, A, there’s always performances that are new to somebody and it’s swish seeing what others favour, etc. :)

Could I recommend some versions of Zoom if you have them, they’re super-spandangly. :twisted:

Dazey, PLEASE do advice! I begged thou on da nees! 8)

Because it’s a hell of a job, listening to the best version of each year (which mostly come from the booties I guess). Then I want to do:

The Best Epic Smashing Pumpkins Live Song Of The Year ….

as a download for us to enjoy. Starting with the early years, going up to 2008. Each year 1 song only. One year it can be I Am One, the other year it can be Transmission. Trying to avoid to have the same song twice of course. I think you guys get the picture, so if any of you can advice me here in this topic on a certain date or at least the name of the song, then I would love to check that out.

On your feet, Soldier. :)

I’m upping a nice remastered Zoom to start things off (as I happen to have some goodies to hand).

In future some 2000 shows would be swish, there’s some great versions of Ava Adore and Perfect around, for example. 8)

OK, we can do more than 1 song per year also, and have them in a random order. :lol:

We just post them in here, with this title (just an example), so every downloader can find it easily:

And here is my epic 1988 download for you guys. The earliest of the early epics, it’s even without Jimmy Chamberlin on drums! It is from that little period of almost a year when they still had a drum machine. Billy even rants a bit about (not) having a drummer in this epic classic.

The Best Epic Smashing Pumpkins Live Song Of The Year 1988: Nothing And Everything.

(recorded at 1988/08/10 Avalon Chicago, from a tape that Billy Corgan gave to Eric Agnew.)

Last one for today, the live saga continues with 1989! I have always been very fond of this absolute live rarity. Actually I’m hoping this song will get a place on the Gish box set. I’m having my fingers crossed for that…

The Best Epic Smashing Pumpkins Live Song Of The Year 1989: Alabaster.

(recorded at 1989/04/30 Cabaret Metro Chicago.)

I really like Nothing and Everything but I don’t think i’ve ever heard of Alabaster so I think I’ll download that one. But it might take forever since my computer is extremely slow. :(

Thank you Arthur

my computer is slower than shit too so welcome to the club. :? :wink:

i use the orbit downloader though, which i think Dazey suggested awhile back in another thread of goodies. it works good and downloads faster.

Transmission will (most probably) be provided in the 1998 post, be patient, we’ll get there. :wink:

And that 30 minutes Gossamer is on my list for 2007 indeed, but there is strong competition…
