MP3: Download Tragically Hip FM Broadcast from ’89

 

By Uncle Blurt

The music world lost another titan this week, Gord Downie, frontman for Canada’s Tragically Hip, and passionate obituaries and testimonials quickly followed. The ever-diligent archivists over at the Big O zine have duly unearthed a fantastic-sounding deep-archive concert by the band, originally broadcast live over CFNY-FM 102.

MP3: Tragically Hip – Spectrum, Toronto, Ontario, Canada; November 30, 1989.

Apparently the 51-minute show has been bootlegged in the past, notably on the So Hip It Hurts CD, but this version is reportedly taken from a new, better-sounding source, an uncirculated off-air cassette master. Check out the tracklisting, below.
