Radiohead fans, Santa Claus has arrived. As Hidden Track points out, the soundboard recording to Radiohead’s legendary 2006 headlining performance at Bonnaroo Music Festival recently surfaced online. Widely considered one of the greatest festival performance in recent memory, the 28-song setlist included everything from past classics (“Paranoid Android”, “Street Spirit (Fade Out)”), rare live cuts (“Kid A”, “Dollars and Cents”), and early renditions of In Rainbows material (“Arpeggi (Weird Fishes)”, “Videotape”).

Mixing on the live recording was handled by Paul Phipps, who explained the process on

It’s hard to believe this was over 5 years ago, but a friend of mine was running sound that night. He snagged the 2-track master from the board and handed the raw WAV over to me. I felt like I scored the mix of a lifetime. I’ve spent twenty years behind mixing consoles and mastering is one of my fortes, so I couldn’t wait to pull the best out of this one.

After two months of wrangling, I finally came up with a mix that I loved. Everything is crystal clear. I have heard every “official” Radiohead live release and none of them sound this clear. After 5 years of keeping this to myself, I had a talk with my friend — and he gave me to the OK to go ahead and release this to the public on the 5th anniversary of this awesome show. Of course, they could tell me to take it down any moment, so I would download the files below as soon as possible.

Consider this the best gift before year’s end. Consult the tracklist below, pout that you weren’t there (again), and download immediately.

Update: In case the link isn’t working, download part one here and part two here.

Can anyone please tell me how to download each song individually? When I click on the link, it starts playing the song, but won’t download.
