I was wondering if there was anywhere I could find Lou Barlow and Bob Mould singing an acoustic version of "Believe what you're Saying"..

I saw this on 120 minutes a long time ago and never forgot it. I tried google and youtube but didn't find it anywhere! Thanks!

I don't have an answer for you, but I'll be watching any thread that develops. That is one of my all-time favorite songs.

This guy has one. (Note: GEMM can be very flaky about actual stock.)

Best answer: Well, buying the thing from GEMM seems to be an answer. My order's in, if I get it I'll send MeFiMail to all y'all and send out MP3s.

Funny, I sat next to Jeff Buckley and his GF Joan at a wedding once, and Bob Mould came on to me before a show once. Deep Karma Canyon.

(I'll take an MP3 of that Mary Lou Lord track, too. I used to love watching her do "Cinderella Backstreet" on Newbury St.)

I have a tape of Sugar called Besides. It has an acoustic version on it but it isn't live. It's called the campfire mix. Not sure if that's what you want.

Nope, Foam, that's just the album version with Bob's vocal and guitar tracks soloed.

I am interested in an mp3 of this track, please.

Me, too, please?

(So many good Minnesota music posts on MetaFilter! So happy!)

Response by poster: Thanks Jessamyn!
If you get it in Nicwolff, it would be super awesome to have mp3's!
Thank you everyone.
