Free Download - soundboard recording of Radiohead’s 2006 Bonnaroo performance

"This performance was epic.

Already known as one of the best live bands of all time, Radiohead did us all a favor by putting on a live show for the ages in Tennessee, USA of all places.

Bonnaroo has had its share of amazing acts. From Bruce Springsteen to Eminem, it's never had to look hard for a top notch act. The other bands on the bill in 2006 were:

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Phil Lesh & Friends, Elvis Costello & the Imposters feat. Allen Toussaint, Beck, Oysterhead, Bonnie Raitt, Death Cab for Cutie, moe., Bright Eyes, The Neville Brothers, Béla Fleck & the Flecktones (the original line-up), Cypress Hill, Buddy Guy, Damian 'Jr. Gong' Marley, Ben Folds, Common, Dr. John, Sonic Youth, Les Claypool, G. Love & Special Sauce and many more.

It's hard to believe this was over 5 years ago, but a friend of mine was running sound that night. He snagged the 2-track master from the board and handed the raw WAV over to me. I felt like I scored the mix of a lifetime. I've spent twenty years behind mixing consoles and mastering is one of my fortes, so I couldn't wait to pull the best out of this one.

After two months of wrangling, I finally came up with a mix that I loved. Everything is crystal clear. I have heard every "official" Radiohead live release and none of them sound this clear. After 5 years of keeping this to myself, I had a talk with my friend -- and he gave me to the OK to go ahead and release this to the public on the 5th anniversary of this awesome show. Of course, they could tell me to take it down any moment, so I would download the files below as soon as possible.

Then, listen to it over and over and over.

I really tried to focus the attention on the individuals, breaking it apart so you can hear everyone. The show improves as it goes -- with the first couple songs being a bit rough -- they settle in and the last 10 songs are completely spot on and wonderful. Because it's straight from the board, you get to hear the band without all that damn crowd noise.

The arrangement to Bodysnatchers is a bit different from the album version. You can tell they were still working on it.

You will hear every little detail, like you were running sound. This is the best Radiohead live recording you will ever hear. Quality. Performance. It's all here. I love Radiohead. They truly have made my life better simply by playing musical instruments.

My personal favorite from this show is Videotape. I like this version over the album version so much more. So passionate. Just amazing.

This website will not need to exist for long, because as soon as I post these songs, they will spread across the internet and then I can take them down and give my server a rest. If you have reached here and the songs are no longer available for download, please accept my apologies, but rest assured it is out there somewhere.

Excellent find, cheers OP.
Worked this time, Thanks

Although that is a different web page than last night.
Awesome, I had the bends in my MD player for about a year when I was at Uni. Long time ago!
Tasty!
on it now
Thanks to the OP.
Also this Prague concert from 2009 has video provided by fans with audio masters provided to the project by Radiohead themselves - also worth a look or download

CHEERS , worked fine
I have been privileged to see Radiohead at numerous gigs over the years including one of their shows at the O2 this year. They are truly a fantastic band and thanks op for sharing this link.
Funny, he goes to all that trouble and time mixing and mastering this, claims it sounds better than anything official then releases it as MP3. LOL.
I can't say I'd ever see Radiohead again, a very hit & miss band in the 5 times I've seen them but being at Glastonbury 1997 was epic
For those who are really **** about gracing iTunes with untagged music like I - with some work you can tag the music before importing courtesy of MusicBrainz Picard. The tag for the album is here:

Heat added for the great post.
Awesome, thanks OP
Thanks. Now to re-tag and remove the apostrophe in track 29 ;-)
Brilliant. Thanks OP.

such a waste of good audio. - should be in flac ffs.
If he's worried about it getting bootleged on cd - it's only going to get bootleged anyway and rip people off with converted mp3s pretending to be cd quality audio.

Thanks f3lix for sharing the link while it's still here.


eta: why does he need to take them down to give his server a rest? hasn't he heard of file storage/sharing sites like drop box?

There's a torrent with this in FLAC now available, as mentioned here.

Took 2 days to torrent that (legally from the downloads page!), it's a bloody big file. Maybe worth posting as a separate freebie!
