A Perfect Circle Acoustic Sessions. Wait ... what?
May 18, 2011 6:32 AM   Subscribe

I've found a bunch of YouTube videos of A Perfect Circle (Acoustic Sessions) like this one. There's no video, really, just the band logo over the songs. What are these songs from? Are these from an album or a DVD that I can buy?

My web searches just seem to turn up links to these videos and some guitar tabs. It's obviously a live performance recorded ... somewhere. Any ideas where?

I have no info, but WANT!

Yes! There is an album floating around out there called "The Acoustic Sessions" with that logo as the cover. AFAIK it was culled together by a fan from performances the band has done. You can only find it now on file-sharing sites or torrents, I believe.

(The tracklisting: Intro/The Hollow/3 Libras/Starbucks/Thomas/Sleeping Beauty/Weak and Powerless/Orestes/A Stranger/The Outsider)

The little I've been able to dig up is that 3 of the acoustic songs (The Hollow/3 Libras/Sleeping Beauty) are usually referred to as "Live in Philly." I don't know where in Philadelphia they did this. My guess is that it was for a local radio station as an "unplugged, in studio" promo thing.

Like castlebravo says, it was somewhere in Philadelphia, recorded probably late 2001 or early 2002. Each of these songs came on its own 1-track CD that was offered as a freebie along with a purchase of some other APC thing (that I can't remember at this time). My girlfriend at the time worked at "FYE", and they had the 3 Libras disc.

I have the three tracks that castlebravo mentions. There are torrents around the net you can grab that have these three songs.

I remember seeing a video of the performance of "The Hollow", but I don't remember seeing anything else.
