Here is the 2007 American Tour Compilation (edited and compiled by Rustbucket). It fits on 4 CDs (2 from the acoustic sets and 2 from the electric sets) and includes the best available version of every song played on this leg of the tour (October to December 2007). This is a great alternative to getting many different shows from different dates on the tour, as this contains the best-sounding recordings from all the shows. According to the compiler’s notes “Most of the acoustic songs I’ve selected are from Boston Dec 3 and Upper Darby Dec 9. I’ve included both the piano and synth versions of A Man Needs A Maid. Also included are two versions of Mellow My Mind, including the first night from Boise with the mouth harp intro. I’ve put all the piano songs together onto Disc 2, so I’ve subtitled Disc 2 ‘Piano Songs’, albeit a rather short disc so I’ve also included from the BSB October 28th ‘The Way’ and though not a piano song, the acoustic band version of ‘No Hidden Path’. Most of the electric songs are from Upper Darby Dec 10. To my ears this show was the most clear and dynamic for the loud electric songs. The only fades here are the long loud audience applause at the end of each track. I’ve then used WavTrim to get songs on each set to play at the same volumes. Then Goldwave to cross-fade the end of one track into the start of the next for each disc.
