Yeah, I'll probably check in at the beginning of the stream to see how much they're switching it up.  Man, there was a lot of waiting before the show began last night, though.  I don't think they got onstage until around 9:30pm CT.  It also bugged me a little, given how relatively short these sets are, how Jack went borderline silent with the guitar on more than a handful of occasions, causing the performance to go a little slack at times.  I mean, sure, the spaces between the notes matter, and it's fine to try to build anticipation for the next aggressive guitar eruption, but sometimes it just feels like stalling.
I'm not really a big fan of Together, BTW.  To me, it's got really bland lyrics and a so-so melody.  It's one amongst many reasons their debut album is far and away my least favourite of the three.  But yeah, give us more deep cuts off Consolers, or b-sides, or covers:  I'm all for that.

Theyre playing normally like 17 songs per night, thats about 90 mins of music, which is perfectly normal for jack. Hes never been a 3 hour marathon show guy, but sometimes a show will go a bit longer if the vibe is right with the crowd. Love how the racs stick to his no-no setlist philosophy and play it by ear - know the other guys in the band complained about it at times but its such fun having every night be random and different

Considering the variety of formats offered, etc, I would imagine it'd take a lot of time & effort to maintain something like this and deal with all the transactions.  It'd be ideal for us fans to have it through the Vault, but doing so would require a whole build-out and possibly additional staff to maintain it.  Hard to say if the return on investment would be worth it, especially considering all the money TMR has shelled out over the last few years for things like the pressing plant.  Far easier and more economical for them to have it handled by a site that's already set up for that purpose.

Can you tell I work in retail administration...?  ;)

Much easier to contract with nugs than to host the content themselves - they would need to purchase or rent servers from a third party and would need to staff up to do it. With nugs, they handle EVERYTHING for the artist besides the recording and mixing I believe. You are right that folks should not underestimate the cost of maintaining and selling media via your own servers v letting seasoned pros do it. Excited to see what they do with it!

Well, the first of three shows at the Ryman was streamed tonight, on that site as well as the Racs channel on YouTube.  Good show, but I don't know if I'll watch the second and third if there's not that much variation in the setlist from night-to-night.

Heres to hoping they make all 3 available for purchase....the grand debate will be to buy 1 or 2 or all 3!

The Dead Weather show is complete, unlike the Vault LP and DVD version! I haven't checked them out yet but the official bootleg Rac shows might be remixes when compared to the original CDRs - which would be a good thing :)
I bought FLACS of both the DW and WS shows $12.95 and $7.95 respectively - the Stripes show is a nice board tape, previously uncirculated.
I would think the CD option would get you a burned CDR rather than a pressed CD, but didn't see any details after a quick look, nor anything about what sort of art you'd receive with it...

The notes seem to imply some kind of remixing of the 2006 shows occurred in August 2019, but have not purchased any yet
