CLAM005 | Release Date April 24, 2012

This show took place as part of the small tour we did in 2003 in support of the Cup of Sand 2-CD singles & rarities compilation. Hence the setlist now appears kind of bizarre as it's stocked with b-sides we've hardly ever played live ("White Noise"), then-unreleased songs like "Knock Knock Knock," among more familiar numbers. Sure there are a few haphazard moves, but it wouldn't be a clambake otherwise... Hope you enjoy.

-Mac McCaughan

Recorded October 16, 2003 at Cat's Cradle in Carrboro, NC. Recordist unknown. Editing & mastering by Mac McCaughan, additional editing by Brian Paulson.

What is the difference between MP3 and FLAC files?

Merge offers the highest quality MP3s possible. They are encoded without DRM using the LAME version 3.97 encoder at non-variable rate of 320 kbps. At this quality level, the sound is essentially indistinguishable from a CD.

We also offer FLAC digital music files. FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an uncompressed audio format. As such, FLAC files provide a perfect digital copy of a given piece of music.

MP3s eliminate audio data in order to reduce file size. FLAC files are by definition 'lossless' and are a perfect digital copy of the original source material. Because of this, a FLAC audio file is much larger in size than an MP3 file. While FLAC audio is ideal if you listen to your music on a higher-end home stereo, or enjoy close-listening on headphones, it does not have as widespread playback support as the MP3 format.

*Note: FLAC files do not work in iTunes.
