Lift to Experience- Falling From Cloud Nine E.P. (1997)


I first saw Lift to Experience at the Cocodrie in San Francisco. They played after Pedro the Lion and remained one of my favorite bands of the decade (while Pedro remained one of my LEAST favorite).

They sold a tour-only EP that i'm guessing is pretty hard to find now. Uploaded for all your LTE junkies.

It doesn't sound nearly as good as their debut under Bella Union, but in a way it is a nice document of what they sounded like live. Consider it an early statement before they came to the conclusion they did (aka Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads).

I've been looking for a copy of this EP ever since I learned of its existence... I haven't been able to find any... Any suggestions on who I can bribe to part with theirs ?
