The 47th Uncut Playlist Of 2008

I found this morning a decent MP3 stream of the Dead’s Obama benefit show from last month, which has just started playing as I write. The tracklisting looks great – including “Slipknot”, “Help On The Way”, “Franklin’s Tower”, “Dark Star”, “St Stephen” and, fantastically, “Unbroken Chain”.And the starting “Truckin’”, which has been going for a good while now, sounds pretty healthy. Maybe some of the more experienced Deadheads among you could hunt it down and let me know what you think.

As for the playlist, the most auspicious new arrival this week has been the deluxe version of REM’s “Murmur”, complete with a very good bonus CD of a live show from that time. I’ll get round to writing about that soon, maybe even tomorrow. The Animal Collective album remains dazzling; if you were one of those people hassling me to upload “Merriweather Post Pavilion”, what did you think of the leaks a couple of days ago, I wonder?

The list, then. Oh, apologies if you’ve had problems with uncut.co.uk in the past couple of days. Some kind of sinister technical glitch, which is now apparently fixed, we’re assured. Here’s hoping. . .
