PO: The Decemberists - Live Home Library Vol. I (The Hazards of Love)

Recommended Posts

Vinyl live version of what is, I feel confident saying, their least popular album.  Limited bone-colored webstore exclusive available below. 


I grabbed it because it's personally my favorite Decemberists album, though I recognize that is not a widely held opinion and I can't imagine this sells all that well, especially since it's literally just The Hazards of Love.  Might have been better to include at least some of the second set/encore (or at least "Crazy on You").

Guess I'm a weirdo. I love this album the most. The concept is fun, the vocals (from the two women) are fantastic, and I saw them play it on Sept. 26, 2009 at my first Decemberists show with my (now) wife. Kind of a big deal. 

Agree that Crazy On You would have been a fun D-side over etching, but w/e. 

I also grabbed a tee, and dropped $70 unexpectedly, on a Thursday.

I first saw The Decemberists do the Hazards Of Love songs live with Shara Worden at Lollapalooza 2009 and was blown away.

I had to experience it again.

My local show, the Royal Oak Theatre gig on August 11th (this recording) was already sold out so I ended up going back to Chicago to catch them on October 8th of 2009.

Yeah, I'll be grabbing this.

I have never understood why The Hazards of Love doesn’t get more attention with regard to their back catalog. I saw this tour in Indianapolis and still feel it is one of my top 3 favorite shows of all time. Also probably my favorite Decemberists album due to seeing it live. Instant purchase for me.
