Juliana Hatfield- Live At Q Division Studios, March 2021: How To Walk Away Album

 

 
 For the fourth concert in her live album series, Juliana Hatfield chose to perform the album, How To Walk Away in it's entirety. It was her eighth solo album that was released in 2008 and is an interesting choice taken from her mid-solo career when she moved away from releasing records on major record labels, but chose to release it on her own independent label, Ye Old Records. This is her second solo studio album on Ye Old and the record is lusher and more full sounding than I originally remember it. It was a solid follow-up to her fantastic, Made In China album 3 years earlier. I didn't realize it until she mentioned it during the stream, that the album was recorded at (the late) Adam Schlesinger's studio, Stratosphere Sound. Makes sense, since Jody Porter (from Fountains of Wayne) plays guitar on the album.
  • Juliana begins The Fact Remains (track 1), stops during the song, but eventually finishes it. She is unhappy with the performance and redoes the song.
  • She plays both acoustic and electric guitar during the show. I've noted what tracks she plays electric on (e).
  • During the "encore" section, she performs two songs from her upcoming album, Blood. Some tasty, upbeat songs, Torture and Mouthful of Blood, sounds like a concept album perhaps?
  • Other highlights include a cover of Led Zeppelin's, Rock and Roll (from her covers album, Juliana Hatfield), On Your Mind from an album with Frank Smith, Sittin' In A Tree and a Some Girls song, The Prettiest Girl.
 

 The live recording, as usual, sounds perfect! I had a problem recording live because halfway through my internet started to lag and freeze constantly, so I had to stop recording. Fortunately, the video is up for two weeks after the live performance, so I had to record from that. I don't know if it affects the quality of the sound or if it's still considered lossless, but to my ears, it sounds the same. Looking forward to the next album live stream!
Enjoy!
 
I have a signed poster (still hung on my wall!) and CD for this album.

Please do NOT sell or profit from this recording!
Do NOT convert to lossy formats except for personal use
Please share! 

The video performance is still up on YouTube (only for another week, April 3)!
