"Everything you're gonna hear tonight is my own music." On October 5th, 2017, DJ Shadow played a sold-out show at Albert Hall, Manchester England in support of 2016's The Mountain Will Fall. The masterful, career-spanning live set not only nods to the Bay Area producer's entire catalog (from Endtroducing, all the way up to The Mountain and everything in between), but also showcases just how prolific Josh Davis is. Longtime fans will recognize bits and pieces of several classic DJ Shadow favorites skillfully slipped into the performance, but as fresh live versions flipped up as only Shadow can. And for those of us who couldn't make it out to the UK, thankfully the entire 1 hr+ set was flawlessly recorded (intro show monologue and stage banter included) and pressed up for The Mountain Has Fallen Tour double vinyl set. Comes housed in gatefold sleeve, complete with fold-out insert. Recommended.
