The National :: The Black Sessions (Paris, 2005)

the national black sessions

I originally found these tracks on Muzzle of Bees in 2005, listened to them incessantly, and then promptly misplaced them…until now. Consider the following required listening for National fans with material taken from the Cherry Tree EP and, mainly, Alligator, which they were touring in support of at the time.

  1. Yeeeeeeeeeeees! I’ve just started listening to The National, and love pretty much everything I’ve heard so far. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  2. Thanks for the post, the set is a great compliment the White Sessions they did this year. Great quality recordings, it’s nice to see them bring back some of the older material.
