Too bad it is a poor recording off of YouTube, so here are alternatives:

In addition, having completely sold out of all quantities of the 15-vinyl-LP 218-track box set, Pax Am has confirmed a July 2 digital release for Ryan Adams' "Live After Deaf."

While the physical box set that crashed the servers of both paxamrecords.com and kungfunation.com before selling out in 8 minutes featured 218 tracks total (144 on vinyl plus 74 digital-only bonus tracks), on July 2 Pax Am will be offering multiple configurations via iTunes and Amazon:

* A complete digital box set including all 144 tracks from the 15 vinyl LPs and an additional 30 of the 74 bonus tracks

* The option to buy any of the 15 single-show LPs, which range in length from 8-11 tracks each

* Every one of the 174 tracks from the complete digital box set will be available for individual purchase

The collection chronicles the 15-date June 2011 UK/Europe tour that marked Ryan's return to live performance. The shows were the first of a solo acoustic tour featuring Adams.
