All right, so maybe this is crazy. I think it turned out pretty cool. Maybe I’m the only one that would
want to listen to the tour this way.

I am of course aware that NotinCnStopMeNow has also been working on his upcoming compilation.
I ran this past him in a couple of pm’s recently and he said go for it. As can be seen below this
is way different than the way he does his projects.

So anyone feeling adventurous can grab a part or two of this just to check it out
or go for the whole thing. Links to the zipped up files are all below.



Cold And Black And Infinite tour compilation

I've always wanted to do a compilation for a NIN tour.
When this tour started I grabbed all of the recordings as they
became available.
I was looking at the echoingthesound site and found the thread
"Cold and Black and Infinite: Songs Played So Far".
I was immediately struck by seeing the song titles all
spelled out album by album.
Then a few posts down I saw that there's another guy that does
the same thing. Putting together tour compilations.
I didn't really want to step on his toes. But I saw that
he puts everything together as if it's all one huge show.
Which is a good way to do it. So I decided to do mine as
spelled out below.

I've used nothing but audience recordings. I purposely didn't use
any of the matrix shares. And no soundboards of any kind.
The Parts all fade in and out at their starts and ends.
The songs within the parts all smoothly transition from one to another.
The songs are all tweaked to work well together. The levels are all
tamed so nothing jumps out. There's no hard limiting or compression.
The files are all tagged and everything is 44.1 16 bit cd ready for anyone who wants to burn.

I thought initially that I would put the songs in the order that they ran on
the original albums. It didn't always work real well that way
so I grouped the songs as I thought they sounded best.

I don't really do 'art' but I have this cool pic I took a number of years ago that I've included.
It shows some graffiti that was below a local railroad bridge. When I took the pic
the graffiti had been up for about 38 years or so. It's gone now.
Anyone can feel free to use the pic for any artwork they might want to create.

Big thanks to all of the tapers and RyanJ and Trent and Nine Inch Nails.

Awesome job!

Just to nit-pick if you want to edit, the NIN version of Physical has always omitted the “(You’re So)” part and is simply called “Physical”. Also add (Farewell Mix) to “I Can’t Give Everything Away” if you like, and remove “whole” from TDTWWA.

Oh and last one, a space between Come and Down in The Big Come Down.

Title perfection nazi here. :D

Mad cool that you took the time to do all this! I'm a little disappointed there's nothing from Detroit in there, but I realize nothing really "exclusive" got played there.

*edit - also noticed In This Twilight is missing :(

I like the idea of each album live. Probably been done before, but perhaps a future project could expand this idea assembling the best recordings available to fill each album out.

There is an old version of that in the sidebar of https://old.reddit.com/r/nin/ (mods on this sub aren't really active at all for community-related activites though, which is a shame, someone just happened to add these 4 years ago)

It is in need of a great upgrade. Idk if someone did it too here on ETS.
