    If you Google "thread for the National Morrissey Solo" you'll see the archived thread; it's not that old; I made it as Skylarker.

    you might dig this. I taped this show and don't think I ever put it in circulation.

    This is the first live show they played of the High Violet era before the record came out. I've always had amazing luck getting tickets for small surprise shows of theirs. This was at the Bell House in Brooklyn and holds about 250.

    This is a massive collection (about 70 songs) of National rarities which I have collected online over the last year or so from God only knows how many sources. It includes b-sides, soundtrack and V.A. compilation songs, radio sessions, demos, and whatnot.

    I may get around to posting screengrabs of the tracklists but for now, trust me, there's a TON of shit in here.

    A few other things you need to know about this stuff:

    -These uploads (two zip files) do NOT include the sessions/rarities playlist I uploaded and linked to on here a week or two back.

    -These two zip files each contain multiple folders/playlists labeled by album era. But these songs were collected over time and while I was pretty meticulous in researching the source of each one, I temporarily just tagged them all as 01, 02, 03, etc. etc. and then went back and chronologized them numerically. But then I would find other tracks, and instead of totally re-doing the iTunes track tags I just slipped them into the list as (ex.) 31b, 31c...etc etc.

    -A few of these songs were recorded and/or released at points between albums where it was kind of arbitrary to say which folder they belonged in. So I judged by the release dates of the LP compared to the dates of the tracks in question. It got kind of dicey between High Violet and Trouble Will Find Me, since they released a few soundtrack songs after HV in 2011 but were also clearly well into writing TWFM, as evidenced by the debuts of I Need My Girl and Rylan on Q in 2011 late that year.

    -If any of the grouping of my songs don't wash and you can clarify as to why, or if you have better (or any) information on the “early/misc” folder, please let me know.

    -Finally and most importantly, I do not claim that this is a definitive collection of their rarities. For instance, I desperately would like the Current session from 2010. So having said all that...
