The best band in the world at the peak of their power: Radiohead live at The Hospital Club's TV Studio in London

Radiohead had already established themselves as the best live band in the world, and a modern day artistic successor to The Beatles, before the 2007 release of their seventh studio album, In Rainbows.

Radiohead got a lot of attention for they way they released In Rainbows – on their own, as a pay-what-you-want digital download.

What got missed, in the minds of critics and fans alike, was the record itself. It's magnificent, lyrically and sonically. Personal and sublime. Restless and recursive. Powerful and contemplative.

This blistering in-studio live set features seven tracks from In Rainbows – Weird Fishes/Arpeggi, 15 Step, Bodysnatchers, Nude, House of Cards, Reckoner and Videotape – as well as three tracks from the underrated Hail To the Thief – The Gloaming, Myxomatosis, and Where I End and You Begin.

Remembering Prince Be and P.M. Dawn

Rolling Stone reports ("Attrell 'Prince Be' Cordes, P.M. Dawn Rapper, Dead at 46"):
Attrel "Prince Be" Cordes, founding member of the chart-topping hip-hop duo P.M. Dawn, died Friday in a New Jersey hospital following a battle with renal kidney disease. He was 46. A representative for the group confirmed Cordes' death to People.

Although health problems stemming from diabetes took its toll on Prince Be – he suffered a stroke in 2005 that paralyzed the left side of his body, and his one of his legs was amputated below the kneecap – P.M. Dawn continued to have a considerable impact on contemporary hip-hop, including its "cloud rap" offshoot."

Few people realize that P.M. Dawn recorded, but never released, a fifth studio album: Fucked Music. In my estimation, that album is a masterpiece. It's a shame that so few people have heard it.

So, to commemorate Prince Be's passing, I'm making that album available for download here.

If anyone who represents the band object's to me making this unreleased music available, please let me know and I'll remove it immediately.
