Smashing Pumpkins – Adore Live [FLAC]

Enjoy!
As the title claims, this is a compilation of live recordings from The Smashing Pumpkins’ Adore Tour in 1998, structured to create a live version of the Adore album in its entirety.  I know this has been done before, but this is MY take on it, using sources that have not been “mastered” by fans.

All songs have been volume adjusted and crossfaded to give the appearance of a continuous performance in two segments: the first eight songs (approximately 45 minutes) and the last eight songs (approximately 50 minutes).  Both could appear on their own as separate discs, if that’s yer poison.  “Blissed and Gone” was substituted for “17” since “17” was just an abbreviated version of “Blissed and Gone” anyways.  You could think of it as an encore after “Blank Page”.

I have chosen the best possible soundquality for all tracks on this compilation.  To choose from the plethora of well-recorded stereo soundboard FM-sourced bootlegs was daunting, but I ultimately chose a key recording which best articulated the extra instrumentation that augmented the live rock band.  Most tracks are from a pre-FM source, with a few others FM sourced.  Most are taken from the US leg of the tour, after the band had gained months of playing time behind them; “Crestfallen” was taken from the European leg, because they had later dropped the opening jam.
