Re: Mark Kozelek : Live In Copenhagen free CD with On Tour Soundtrack

Just checked and I did actually get money in my Paypal a few days, I never received an email from Paypal so I never noticed.
So my sincerest apologies for calling you a compulsive liar lol

Back to the original topic, Mark is just trying to get enough money together so he can retire. Guarantee the Live In Copenhagen album will be released 3 months later on vinyl with an extra track on it. "Heron Blue Live in Oslo" or something like that.

That's pretty much why he just records albums himself now

Re: Mark Kozelek : Live In Copenhagen free CD with On Tour Soundtrack

Well, if Mark is planning his retirement, I think his final farewell should be a cd full of cover songs that the fans recommended. That song, "Bulletproof" by La Roux that came out a couple years ago, I think would make an awesome acoustic cover by Mark. But he only chooses songs that he relates but I still think it would be cool.

I wanted a covers album of 80s rock ballads after hearing him do that REO Speedwagon one.

Love Ain't No Stranger was awesome as well!

I still think that the suggestion of a pet shop boys cover album would be amazing, Go west! Where the skies are blue, go west!

Gangsters Paradise would be a good one. I can imagine exactly how Koz would do it.

Yup even a Live Covers album would be better than all these pointless free live CDs

I definitely don't see these live CDs as pointless.. no release is pointless, to me.

We've clamored for years trying to get soundboard/FM recordings, and now we have 7.. 4 of which were free with purchases.

I say keep them coming.

I totally agree. The free CD's are a nice incentive to buy directly from Koz.

Re: Mark Kozelek : Live In Copenhagen free CD with On Tour Soundtrack

He could just vary them up a bit, with a few more obscure tracks. But the last 5 or so are all just him and his acoustic guitar.

I'd like a nice live album from the last tour he did for April with the full band.

Re: Mark Kozelek : Live In Copenhagen free CD with On Tour Soundtrack

Yeah, a few more rarities would definitely sweeten the deal. Or dramatically different arrangements, or a full band (wishful thinking), or even the occasional duet (e.g. Follow You Follow Me last time he was in NYC). If he's looking for cash to retire, he should bite the bullet, get the full band, go on mini-tours playing entire albums at a time, and then release  THOSE albums.

Re: Mark Kozelek : Live In Copenhagen free CD with On Tour Soundtrack

I like the live cds too but he should spice things up a little bit. I think the Nights LP was an awesome version. That's what the fans want. Obscure live songs, alternate versions, etc.

Re: Mark Kozelek : Live In Copenhagen free CD with On Tour Soundtrack

Yes, nothing bad with a live album in itself, but they could be a little less same-y. I guess it's just too late for him to release recordings from the time when he actually played songs differently during the same show, but why the hell didn't he release good recordings of any of the full band shows he did not so long ago? THAT is what we all want, not another collection of slightly-simpler-versions of the Admiral Fell songs.

Re: Mark Kozelek : Live In Copenhagen free CD with On Tour Soundtrack

Just because its a lot easier to record just him and hid guitar. Its a wonder he doesn't release every gig
