Vere, if you right click on the files, and choose save as (or save video as etc) you can download them.


Edited to add: I've downloaded them and split the files into tracks. You can grab the zip file here:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ebjvcv4f3u...%2018.zip?dl=0

Vere - this download DOES include the new songs, so avoid tracks 15 & 16.

You have more willpower than I…
I tried not to listen (for about 10 minutes), but utterly failed

Finally had a chance to listen to the recording and realise that I did not split track 9 properly. Here is a link to the corrected edit of The Professor, which you can simply drop in to the folder:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/fs27gwu1i2...essor.mp3?dl=0

Or, if you'd prefer, I've reupped a new zip file of the entire gig with the corrected file here:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ebjvcv4f3u...%2018.zip?dl=0

Sorry for any inconvenience!

Default Thanks, Borneoman

My ultimate favorite secret request was Eskimo, but never thought he would play it because of the operatic Finnish lines, so when he did, I was crying too hard to record for myself. I'm so glad you got this for us!

Yes there was so much Eskimo love from around the world, France, Spain, Italy and many parts of the US were represented in Freeman Alley behind The Box Saturday night. It was fitting that he played Eskimo that night. Hopefully we can all meet again.

Yes, it was so great to meet a handful of you. I am still laughing about some of the jokes from the alley, especially Cuuliem demonstrating a French accent .

I should have stayed with you all longer, but I knew my train back to Brooklyn stopped running at 11:45pm because of some construction (I learned that the hard way the night before!!!).

Wish I could have been there, but it's a Long, long way from Germany. :-) Thanks for the excellent recording, Mike, and for cutting it up into songs, Dawno! Soundtrack of my current life.

Wow this live version of Eskimo was absolutely incredible. Cant even begin to imagine how amazing it would be to hear it in person! Hope he plays it at the Apollo next month.

I think Eskimo was my favorite song of the show. Its a close call between Eskimo and The Professor but I was lucky enough to see Damien and Lisa sing the Professor together in 2006, cant top that version.

I wrote up a review for the music site I contribute to, and it's finally been posted. (Stupid CMJ last week.) Text is below, but if you want to give me a click, it'd be nice. My editor got lazy and didn't use any of my photos though. Boo. http://www.shortandsweetnyc.com/2014...he-box-101814/

The Box is a venue best known for its club nights and racy burlesque, but a couple hundred audience members gathered on October 18 for a different spectacle: the final show in Damien Rice’s North American tour. Rice has been long absent from these shores, but with his awaited third LP My Favourite Faded Fantasy hitting the shelves next month, the Irish troubadour embarked on a short run of intimate solo shows. Trouble with an ear infection had caused him to reschedule a couple of shows earlier in the week, but as soon as Rice began his show, it was clear nothing was subduing the intensity of his voice.

The safe choice would have been to stay with familiar album tracks like opener “Delicate,” but Rice opted to move through the show with no setlist whatsoever. After performing “Eskimo,” complete with a segment sung in Finnish, Rice stated that he was thinking about faster songs. The call went up for “Coconut Skins,” followed by an optimistic fan requesting “Face,” a song Rice hadn’t performed in ten years by his own estimate. After a few seconds of tinkering with his guitar, Rice stormed through the rambunctious track and murmured his way through the lyrics that he no longer remembered. The cheers that greeted this performance were some of the loudest of the night, and Rice seemed to grow even more confident as he played off this energy.

For most of the show, Rice filled the room with his emotive delivery, shifting from plaintive and resigned to aggressive desperation in the span of a moment. When he reached “I Don’t Want to Change You,” the lead single of his new record, he was joined on percussion by Shahzad Ismaily, who was booked to perform his own show in the city later. Ismaily’s accompaniment seemed largely improvised but meshed well with Rice’s busker sensibility. When Ismaily had to leave during “My Favourite Faded Fantasy,” he slipped through a door at the back of the stage. A lesser artist would have been thrown off by the stark reminder of Freeman Alley being mere steps away, but Rice remained in the song and kept the spell unbroken.

Many encores can feel like a lazy obligation, but on this night, it seemed to be a gift to the audience. New track “Colour Me In” dazzled in its simplicity, and then Rice upped the stakes with another new song, “Trusty and True.” This time, he explained that he felt for audience members since he was not the tallest man, and he asked for a chair to stand on to perform. From this vantage point, he was able to teach the audience some lyrics and become a choir leader of sorts, breaking down the barrier between witnessing the show and participating in it. This moment would have been an idyllic end to a beautiful evening, but the applause continued after Rice made his exit. With a bashful stance, he returned to the darkened stage and stood on his chair once again. His guitar was unplugged, microphone pointed to the ground. Shunning all amplification and spectacle, he performed “The Blower’s Daughter.” Though the song is probably his most well known, there was no sense of going through the motions. It was a powerful moment for open hearts and open ears. When the curtain drew closed at last, Rice had given us nearly two hours of entertainment, most of the tracks from his new record, and a sense of awe that followed us out into the cool October night.
