orton.jpgAnother testament to the great A.D. readers out there, John, from Australia, recently sent me this M. Ward/Beth Orton show of excellent sound quality. Recorded in 2004 at Sydney’s Seymour Centre, the submission was in response to the Neko Case cover of “Buckets of Rain” posted here. Note the M. Ward/Beth Orton “Buckets of Rain” duet below; as usual Ward’s acoustic playing throughout the set is fantastic.

John’s show notes: “Attached are 9 tracks from the show from Beth Orton supported by M Ward. She played only with percussion on that tour, and the venue for this show was the intimate Seymour Centre in Sydney. I was at the show, but the recording was done by JJJ here in Australia – I actually taped this off the radio onto a tape – then turned it into a CD. They do a great version of “Comfort of Strangers” together – much preferred to the eventual album version of last year.”
