Feist – CBC 2004, NPR 2005, KCRW 2005

Posted in mp3, radio session at 10:39 am by rgsc

I will be away tommorow so this is going up a touch early. I should change the header again to ‘will be updated sunday or whenever the hell I feel like it.’ But you don’t care about that. On with the music.

Feist performed this past Wednesday in Kingston but I had to miss it. By all accounts it was a very good show, so, turning things away from Belle & Sebastian for the moment, I thought I would post these Feist radio sessions.

First up is a CBC recording of Feist who performed three songs on the sidewalk outside of El Mocambo in Toronto on June 11, 2004, as part of the North by North-East festival (see the photo below). As you might expect from recording in such a location, there is a fair bit of traffic noise in the background, including sirens, but the sound is good otherwise. Next is Feist’s studio session on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic on June 21, 2005. And, lastly is Feist’s July 1st performance on NPR’s World Cafe. In this trio or radio sessions are two versions of the new(ish) song “Intuition” as well as a new and untitled song. Does anyone knows the name if this one?
You know the drill. All are on rapidshare so click and follow for that Feist-y goodness.

UPDATE: I’m not sure why I didn’t do this before, but for here is a zipfile of all three Feist sessions (66.6 MB) for those of you who want it all at once.

  1. ooh. thanks for the feist! i love her,
    however, rapidshare wont let me download the last 2 tracks from the last session. would anyone be so kind as to send those to me?

  2. rgsc said,

    I just tried rapidshare and everything seemed fine (they might not let you download more than one file at a time so that might have been the problem). So give it another shot. If it is still a no-go I can use yousendit or something else and repost the last two files.

  3. […] More Feist…B(oo)tlog has three of Feist’s radio appearances for download. […]

    Wow great…
    What about the CBC radi one 2005 at Toronto…it’s an amazing show !
    I only found it on a very low quality….
    Anyone would have a clue ?

  5. rgsc said,

    Hey Leo,
    I ripped the CBC show from the real audio file on the CBC site – I did the best I could. You can check out the streaming site to see what the original file is like here

  6. leo said,

    I did it too…I was talking about an other show…broadcast by CBC at the end of 2005, live in TORONTO, a great concert with the whole band….

  7. rgsc said,

    Oh, sorry I see what you are saying, Leo, I thought you meant the one i posted was low quality. I haven’t heard the show you are talking about but if I get a hold of it i will post it.

  8. These links seem to have expired… Any chance of a repost? Particularly the NPR set?

  9. rgsc said,

    Hi Mike, the complete zip with all three sessions is still up and running. and here is just the NPR session

  10. My mistake about the link being down. And thanks for taking the time to make a separate file for the NPR session. Much appreciated!

  11. rgsc said,

    No problem, Mike. Glad we got it figured out.

  12. blagdan said,

    I love this site. Good work…

  13. Summer said,

    Hey! I just found this website and I’ve been looking around forever for these tracks, but when I try downloading all three at the same time or downloading one song at a time rapidshare doesn’t seem to let me, it says that the files have been deleted. Is there anyway I could still get all three of these recordings??
    Could someone possibly send it to me? Let me know! Thanks!

  14. john said,

    looks like the files have timed out on rapidshare. i’d really love a copy of the KCRW show. I can’t find an mp3 version of it anywhere. I might be able to make one myself shortly though, so if it works I’ll post it here for people.

    In the same vein, I created a recording of this 2004 show in Rotterdam.

    Feist Live @ Bazar Curieux (25 MB).

    It’s a bookmarked AAC audio file (should play fine it iTunes and others) so you can jump to the individual songs or hear the whole concert.

    Enjoy and thanks for all the Feist Bootlegs!

  16. rgsc said,

    thanks nick!

  17. […] can grab a whole bunch of her older live sets, including her previous KCRW set 2 years ago, from Bootlog. For those that don’t have the new album yet, that is “Honey Honey” that she […]

  18. Andrew said,

    Does anyone have the version of Mushaboom she performed on Kimmel over a year ago? It would be greatly appreciated 🙂

  19. […] Feist.  This stuff compliments of bootlog.  It’s rather old but there are some great live recordings and interviews.  Go there […]

    how to add your blog to rss reader, I have some troubles…

  21. geoff said,

    thank you thank you thank you! I’ve been trying to find these kcrw MBE tracks forever. I have so many live recordings of hers but always want more!

  22. Croz said,

    Absolutely great collection, thanks! I’ve got a good audio rip of Feist’s Trabendo Session and when my site gets back on its feet (server migration time) I’ll try to remember to post a link in the comments here.

    I’m not sure how this page works, but I see a bunch of other Feist fans here so I hope I’m doing this correctly. I uploaded a 2005 – 2009 compilation DVD of Feist performances and programs (all but one are HD broadcasts) a few days ago. If anyone wants to download the files for the DVD, go to


    I put the information related to what is on the DVD on this site as well as the MegaUpload download links too…
