Medeski, Martin, & Wood - Rarities & B-sides
(2xCD) Bootleg

I've seen this (100%) bootleg compilation available on many torrents. I'm publishing the info not to promote piracy but it's quite a helpful list of rare Medeski Martin & Wood tracks, outtakes, bonus for Japan only, collaborations, etc. - for completists (I'm interested if anyone has the CDs!). I've added some references to more rare MMW stuff at the end. (Djouls)

Hi To all dedicated Bootleggers and Fans of Medeski Martin and Wood!

I am new to the bootlegging game and trying to find some bootlegs for a friend as both a present and as part of a “quest” (or a bet depending on which one of us you talk too!).

The deal is I have roughly a month or so to try to find and or download the following bootlegs that my friend ( a DIE HARD MMW fan) has been trying to find for like, well forever. As I am never one to back down from a challenge (especially for a good friend)…I am able to do whatever I can and use and all means at my disposal to try to find these recordings.

Here is what I am looking for:
1. May 3, 2001 - Houston - Fitzgerald's
2. 2. November 27, 1996 - Austin - Liberty Lunch
3. 3. 7/23/99 – Austin – Stubbs BBQ
4. 12/08/01 – New Orleans – Tipitina’s

If you have any insight, assistance, help with locating these recordings or just want to see if I can find them, please do not hesitate to email me at or answer this thread.

Thank you everyone!

Determined Jersey Girl

If you go to the following link you should be able to get the whole MMW b-sides, plus some live show recordings

it's directly to a small batch of shared music
but you might have to join mediafire as a free user to make dnlds easy (to dnld more than one at a time, get speedier dnld speeds, no waiting between dnlds) most file sharing middle man sites are like that - no cost at all - anyway, I did it, no problem
