Download Radiohead’s 2006 Bonnaroo Performance (Soundboard Recording)

    Merry Christmas Radiohead fans! The band’s historic 2006 Bonnaroo* performance which featured two encores and a total of 28 songs has now leaked online in the form of a soundboard quality recording. 

    The process of mastering and mixing the live recording was done by Paul Phipps and he describes the process below via RadioheadBonnaroo:

    It’s hard to believe this was over 5 years ago, but a friend of mine was running sound that night. He snagged the 2-track master from the board and handed the raw WAV over to me. I felt like I scored the mix of a lifetime. I’ve spent twenty years behind mixing consoles and mastering is one of my fortes, so I couldn’t wait to pull the best out of this one.

    After two months of wrangling, I finally came up with a mix that I loved. Everything is crystal clear. I have heard every “official” Radiohead live release and none of them sound this clear. After 5 years of keeping this to myself, I had a talk with my friend — and he gave me to the OK to go ahead and release this to the public on the 5th anniversary of this awesome show. Of course, they could tell me to take it down any moment, so I would download the files below as soon as possible.

    You will hear every little detail, like you were running sound. This is the best Radiohead live recording you will ever hear. Quality. Performance. It’s all here. I love Radiohead. They truly have made my life better simply by playing musical instruments.
