As you know if you visit my site, one of my favorite bands is Needtobreathe. I have everything they have put out on vinyl and now I am going after everything they have released on CD (that they don’t have on vinyl). And the CDs I want the most are the exclusive fan club CDs they release each year.
If you join the Needtobreathe Insiders fan club (for $60 a year), you get a Live CD of tracks collected from the band’s live performances. (among other things such as a T-shirt and a free live track download ever month – that is 12 more songs). Needtobreathe actually records every show they put on so they have a ton of tunes to choose from. They have released 5 volumes and number 6 will be coming in December. I have never joined so getting my hands on these has not been easy as it is not cheap. I am looking for the right price and most of the time it is too high. I finally grabbed my first one at a price less than the membership fee.
Who is the band and the musicians on this album? Easy enough, they tell you that…
The first one I got a hold of is ‘Insiders LP, Vol 2’. It is a collection of 14 live tracks from around world and let me tell you it is fantastic. The band has spent some time with these and the production quality is amazing. They put as much time in to them as they would a normal studio album or live album release to the general public. The mix is done so the songs blend in with each other perfectly and it feels like a complete show.
