I was making some artist specific playlists for myself on Spotify this morning and realized 2 things:
live recordings are great. I knew this already, but I am occasionally reminded of how much fun it is to hear something recorded live instead of in a studio.
live recordings when they come up mixed in with studio recordings, suck. They are too much their own thing. They don’t work together. But they do work with other live recordings of almost any genre.
So, I decided that I was going to make a playlist of just live music, and I would like to take suggestions. It’s always more fun to get outside input.
1)No albums. Pick a track.
2)No genre restrictions. Classical, jazz, punk, classic rock. Let’s try to mix it up.
3) try to suggest something that hasn’t already been suggested. I am going to turn this into a playlist. It will be dull if it’s all the same artist or variations on the same song.
Don’t worry if it’s specifically on Spotify, but bonus points to you if you know it is.
If we get a good mix I’ll post the playlist here and we can all share it if this works.
