Six down, one to go, and I can definitely say I'm feeling more enthusiastic about this installment than Vol. 5 from a few weeks ago. Things kick off with a Black Sessions performance in March of 1994, in support of the Frosting on the Beater platter. Audio recording is analog sourced, and a bit dodgy at that, but the song selection is par excellence, with some vintage covers included at the end. The remaining four tracks are culled from a 1996 appearance on CBC Radio in Vancouver, where the Posies happened to be sharing the studio with Thom Yorke (Radiohead, duh). There's an impromptu run through Oasis' "Wonderwall." and Yorke contributes guest vocals on "Blow Out." Yoy can read the folder notes for the skinny on this rather unique set.
