VIDEO: “Free To Decide” & “Sunday” live in Boston for Telethon

July 22, 2019  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

A few days ago the MDA Telethon published on YouTube a very rare video of The Cranberries performing 2 songs in Boston, MA, USA for the Telethon 1996. It was broadcast on the US TV show “Jerry Lewis Stars Across America MDA Labor Day Telethon” on 2 September 1996. The video quality is perfect, upscaled in HD 1080p and respecting the original 4:3 format.

The Cranberries played 2 shows in Boston that year, on September 1st and 2nd, so without more information it is impossible to know the exact day of that performance, depending on the fact that it was live broadcast or prerecorded.
[EDIT – JULY 27th: The performance was recorded during the band’s first show on September 1st according to the TV report “On Music” broadcast in Spain on C+ in 1996 where Dolores (and the whole band) has the same outfit during the song “Forever Yellow Skies” (starts at 2:10). Thanks to Luis Hernández for the info.]

The “MDA Labor Day Telethon” was an annual telethon held on Labor Day, starting the night before and throughout.

It looks like the In The End test pressings are back on sale on the official store !!!

We don’t know yet if these additional vinyls will be numbered, though there seems to be very few on sale (5 left at the moment ?)

Thanks to Stanislav Nikolov and Christophe Rennes

EDIT @ #14:15 GMT – SOLD OUT!!!


UPDATE – JUNE 14

Quite fast, the first Test Pressings arrived today and aren’t the exact same. First, they aren’t numbered and secondly they include 2 sleeves, the regular white paper sleeve and a thicker white cardboard sleeve. Both sleeves have The Cranberries logo stamped on it. Interesting!
There’s no explanation on why…

A rare Cranberries audio bootleg surfaced the internet yesterday. Recorded in Bruxelles (Belgium) at Botanique on 20 October 1994, it is available on the private torrent trackers dimeadozen.org, thanks to user ShadowsATT.

Botanique, Bruxelles – Belgium
20th October 1994

 

I received this audience 2nd generation audio, sourced from a MD master recording, many years ago in a tape trade.
The audio quality is average, more than average sometimes, but maybe, not good as a digital master source recording should be and this is probably due to a not proper transfer. It’s anyway still pleasantly listenable.
The concert recording is complete and there is no cuts or partial songs.
Ok, I hope this audio will be interesting for many fans of the band. Happy listening!
