Where can I download free, officially sanctioned recordings of Warren Zevon live performances from throughout his career? Amazingly enough, there is such a site. Most of its free music relates to jam bands, which couldn’t interest me less, but there are a couple of surprises in its collection, including Cracker (and Camper Van Beethoven), Cowboy Junkies, and Zevon. My favorite so far: Live at the Bluebird, 1996. There’s also a nice little set from the Austin City Limits studio.
There are thousands of other fascinating things at the Internet Archive as well — it’s a great browse. Its search engine is unreliable though — I’ve found things there on Google that I can’t locate with the internal engine or directories.
No need to thank me. Just go.
