Notes from the taper:
This is one of the many versions of the recordings of Thurston Moore's show in Paris when
promoting the album Trees Outside The Academy in 2007.
To my knowledge there is a couple of other versions, and this one is certainly not the best.
I didn't shared it at the time, because the recording is not brillant, not to say it is terrible...

At that time my ECM-719 microphone was no longer working fine, and I could only record one channel.
Therefore I copied the right channel to the (blank) left channel.

After that I sadly managed to lost the original files of this recording. I fortunately retrieved a copy
somewhere, but I realized on this copy that the track 10 ('Honest James') was corrupted.
There are then a few glitches on the song, which I tried to hide a bit.
The chance of retrieving the original files are very weak, not to say there is no hope...
