The Posies - Broadcasts, Vol. 3

Welcome to the third installment of the seven volume, Posies Broadcasts collection, a fan-curated assemblage of the group's on-air radio performances and FM concert simulcasts, which were surprisingly plentiful and well archived.   As I mentioned in my initial Posies onslaught two weeks ago, most of these sessions came to pass when Auer, Stringfellow and Co. were pushing their Frosting on the Beater and Amazing Disgrace albums.  This set is no exception, consisting primarily of two sterling sets for Amsterdam's 2 Meter Sessions, one from late '93, and then a 1996 follow-up for Amazing Disgrace.  The '93 Frosting-era session contains a few tongue-in-cheek, impromptu covers of Teenage Fanclub and Deep Purple tunes among others.  The session notes (included in the folder) mention that two songs from the original '93 broadcast ("Dreaming" and "Burn and Shine") were omitted due to inclusion on the At Least, At Last box set, and a 2 Meter compilation CD respectively.

Excellent Stuff. Keep up the good work. Did you mention you had a Tina Age 13 single in one of your comments following on from the Goldenrod supermix compilation? Please could you post it when you get a chance. Cheers.

Glad you're liking these. As for TA13, I don't have a single by them, just a cd ep that I'll try to get up soon.
