If we had to make a list of bands who need to sell live recordings on a regular basis, Wilco and My Morning Jacket would’ve been near the top of that list. Apparently our wish has come true as hot on the heels of Wilco’s “experiment” in selling live shows comes word that My Morning Jacket have just launched an Official Bootleg Series.
If you head over to live.mymorningjacket.com you’ll be able to pre-order recordings of tonight and tomorrow night’s Red Rocks performances for $9.99 each. It looks like they are only selling MP3s for now, but at least they are high-quality 320kbps MP3s. According to the website, shows are available for download approximately three to five days after each performance. With the Spontaneous Curation series in full effect, and MMJ dusting off rarities at each stop, this is great timing. Plus, MMJ promised no repeats between the two Red Rocks gigs.
