Counting Crows To Release Live Double Album

The Counting Crows are planning to release a live double album of material culled from the band’s appearances on MTV’s “Live From The 10 Spot” and VH1′s “Storytellers.”

Intended as a gesture of gratitude by the Crows towards its fans, the record should also help tide over the band’s supporters until the completion of a new studio album, which probably won’t arrive in stores until 1999.

According to the spokesperson, the band plans to meet over the course of the next week and hammer out a definite track listing and title, although the following set lists from the two shows should give you an idea of what to expect:

VH1 “Storytellers”

  • “A Long December”
  • “Angels of the Silences”
  • “Mr. Jones”
  • “Rain King”
  • “Catapult”
  • “Have You Seen Me Lately?”
  • “Ghost Train”

Songs edited from broadcast: “Round Here,” “Omaha,” “Mercury,” “Good Luck,” “Anna Begins,” and “Walkaways”

MTV “Live From The 10 Spot”

  • “Recovering
    the Satellites”
  • “Angels of the Silences”
  • “Rain King”
  • “Goodnight Elizabeth”
  • “Catapult”
  • “Mr. Jones”
  • “Omaha”
  • “Sullivan Street”
  • “Have You Seen Me Lately?”
  • “Round Here”
  • “I’m Not Sleeping”
  • “A Murder of One”
  • “Anna Begins”
  • “A Long December” [1.4 MB QuickTime]
  • “Walkaways”

Songs edited from broadcast: “Wiseblood,” “Daylight Fading,” [900k Quicktime] “Children in Bloom,” and “Raining in Baltimore.”

The Crows are currently huddled in a Los Angeles studio/house working on material for the follow-up to 1996′s “Recovering the Satellites,” and according to one fan site, the band has already completed the first song written expressly for the new album, entitled “Saint Robinson and His Cadillac Dream.”

The Counting Crows live double album is due out June 30, although it might be pushed back to July 14.
