Our Pearl Jam live exploration continues with this great news for those of you looking to tryout the new Google Music service for Android mobile users. For a limited time you can download Pearl Jam’s live show from their 9.11.11 Toronto show when you sign up for the service.
We’ve been cruising around Google Music to see what other live tracks are in their catalog and there’s some good stuff waiting for you at the standard price of around .99-1.29 per track or about 9.99 per album. A list of live concerts I found is here and here. And general list of free songs to get your started is here.
Do you plan on signing up for Google Music to get access to your favorite live tracks on your Android phone? Let us know and we’ll share your story on a future episode of Live Fix Radio.
Is live music better experienced live or on record? Is the live album dead? Those are just two of the big philosophical questions that we’ve been wondering about more and more lately.
So, hey, what better than to explore those questions by sharing some of our favorite (and not so favorite) live album releases of 2011?
During this episode of Live Fix Radio, we’ll share the stories behind and tell you what we loved the most about new, legendary and crowd-rocking live tracks by Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Sigur Ros, Tegan and Sara. And we’ll explain how we saw the light after listening to the new Rush and Peter Frampton live albums.
And in case you missed it, you can also listen to Part One Live Album Mega-mix here.

And Your Top 2011 Live Track Picks Are…?
Which albums are on your list this year? Got a question about a topic or track we talked about during the show? We invite you to share your concert experiences and thoughts about this podcast in the comments below. Go ahead be honest. We can take it. Good, bad or ugly, we’d love to hear you story and share it in a future episode of Live Fix Radio.
Sometimes all it takes is being at a live show to come up with a band name that works. At least that’s how it was for Pearl Jam before they began their twenty year career that’s being celebrated this year with a tour and a film by Cameron Crowe.
With Coachella behind us, the next major summer festival is Bonnaroo music festival taking place in Manchester, TN this weekend. Though I won’t be there in person, I’ll be checking things out via the AT&T Blueroom and Fuse TV coverage, the first time ever Bonnaroo will be broadcast on television and the first of three-year deal between Fuse and Bonnaroo.
Speaking of firsts, this will also be the first time I’ve ever watched a concert on Blue Room and I’m most interested to see if AT&T does any more censoring like it did during Pearl Jam’s Lollapalooza concert last year. It should be an interesting and different kind of experiment for Live Exhaust.
If you’re attending Bonnaroo drop me an email and let me know how it was and we can compare notes.
