Unwound - 06/30/1999 Reykjavik, Iceland LP


Numero Group (2014)

Unwound Wednesday is hanging in there for another week.  Next week may be the last one for a while though.  This time we've got the 06/30/1999 Reykjavik, Iceland LP that was available to purchase with the third Unwound box set from Numero Group.

This LP is a five song live document from, not surprisingly, Reykjavik, Iceland.  It was recoded by RUV according to the description on the Number Group website.  I assume they're a radio station because the sound quality of these five songs is outstanding.  I've never really been a live album guy and I do somewhat question the song choices here, though the version of "Here Come The Dogs" is pretty stellar.

The LP was limited to 1000 copies and only available to purchase directly from Numero Group.  I would not call this essential by any stretch of the imagination, but for only $10 while you're picking up the No Energy box set, I don't see why you wouldn't pick it up.
