MP3: The Black Keys’ Radio Recordings 2007-2008

These recordings previously broadcast by the respective radio stations listed span a time period in the career of The Black Keys between the Magic Potion and Attack & Release albums. They were all freely broadcast, they are reproduced here for the record.

Radio recordings are generally of a much higher quality than any other live recordings. What’s more these sessions are by their nature limited since the band cannot regularly do these type of live recordings. They either simply don’t have the time, too much of a good thing reduces their impact, and most radio stations don’t have studio facilities.

For those fans yearning for some rarities and older tunes in the current live set list, there are some treasures here.

The Strange Desire segue into The Flame is impressive. Would be great to hear that again live alike the Busted segue into Stack Shot Billy that is currently being played live.

Trainspotters will love hearing I Got Mine in its variations, previously The Black Keys’ most recognisable tune.

The cover Here I Am, I Always Am has always been sparsely played so its great to hear that again. The Black Keys Fan Lounge previously featured the KCRW session in this post which included an interview. The Black Keys Fan Lounge has also previously featured a 2003 BBC recording of The Black Keys here.
