2006 Live Album Back in Print & Better Than Ever!
Following the release of their fourth critically acclaimed full-length album, Z, My Morning Jacket delivered yet another quintessential body of work with the 2006 live set/concert film Okonokos. The explosive set contains the band's most dynamic, otherworldly compositions to date, presented in their finest form - live. Belying the myth that live albums tend to highlight the disparity between it and its studio counterpart, Okonokos - mixed by Michael Brauer (Bob Dylan, Coldplay) and mastered by pre-eminent engineer Bob Ludwig - delves into the realm of raw, rich, elevated sound, while proudly staying true to its roots.
The 24-track treasure trove begins with "Wordless Chorus," one of My Morning Jacket's captivating traditional introductions. A glacially expansive "One Big Holiday" grips you, throws you into a trance-inspiring guitar riff frenzy, quiets down, and leads you through another transcendent moment. The blazing collection continues to mesmerize throughout before offering up a spirited "Mahgeeta" which closed the original release. However, this 180g 4LP box set reissue also comes complete with the three exclusive bonus tracks "Where To Begin," "Sooner," and "Strangulation" not found on the CD edition.
