Pixies: Hey - Live Pixies (Available on eMusic)

from piitchforkmedia:

New Pixies Live Album Available on eMusic

Kati Llewellyn reports:
eMusic, the scrappy underdog to iTunes' big rich kid bully, just got picked first for the digital music dodgeball team: Starting today, eMusic is offering an exclusive two-disc Pixies live album, Hey - Live Pixies to its subscribers. iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody, and all the rest of eMusic's contemporaries must wait until January 3 to get their paws on this puppy, which is being self-released by the band. There are no plans to release the album on CD or vinyl.

Hey features twenty-eight tracks hand-picked by the band, culled from their mega-reunion tour that has taken place over the course of the last two years. We know you're tapping your foot in anticipation for the tracklist so you can see if "your" reunion show made the cut. Good luck:

(sigh) Here it comes. I guess this is the future of music IE no more factory pressed CDs Though I think it was They Might Be Giants who first put up a downloadable "album" that was not supposed to be otherwise available, and that was already a couple years ago, I'm afraid this "available online only" trend is the future of playable music access. Future generations will have to pry my factory music CDs from my cold dead hands I wager - I just love 'em too much especially my Japan edition of "Trompe le Monde" with the four bonus live trax!

I wouldn't get too worried. It's just a live album.

Yep, and the sound quality isn't all that great.

What?!???! All these shows were professionally recorded. I got about half of them downloaded. Great sound quality/good mixes to me!

Live albums are usually better than the studio albums, IMO. More energy. More guitars. More rawness.

Good review up at Pitchfork. No mention of any sound quality issues.

My free emusic trial just ended. I could have nabbed this for free! They offer a free trial with like 120 free songs. I got a load of great stuff.
