A lot of great stuff from Colin and band

This journal is for all people who love The Decemberists as much as I do. I've been to several concerts and they played a lot of stuff I couldn't find on their CDs. I was searching, searching and even more searching... and now I provide a neat list for you to check which bonus tracks, covers and B-sides you might have missed so far.

Bonus tracks/B-sides
After the Bombs
Culling Of The Fold
Everything I Try to Do, Nothing Turns Out Right
From my Own True Love (Lost at Sea) (Demo)
Hurdles Even Here
Like A Lion
Perfect Crime #1
The Bandit Queen
The Kingdom of Spain
The Lady From Reims
The Perfect Crime (Junior Boys Remix)
The Tain (obviously THE masterpiece... 18 minutes Decemberist's finest)
Think About Me

Bridges and Balloons(Joanna Newsom cover)
Human Behaviour (Björk cover)
Little Boxes (Weeds theme song)
Southern Girls(live Cheap Trick cover)
Wuthering Heights (live Kate Bush cover)

Live tracks
A Cautionary Song
Feel Like Making Love (together with Lavender Diamond)
O Valencia
Sons & Daughters
The Bandit Queen (with dialogue and tap dancing)
Your Love (seems like a lot of jamming here)

Guess there are a lot more live tracks and covers, please add sources in the comments!

Where to get them?
I found all of those songs on several indie blogs out there, whoch took a lot of time. If you like to know where to get those files exactly, feel free to send me a message. And please feel also free to add songs which I didn't find yet :).

Solo stuff
For people who still don't know that Colin recorded some solo stuff, I'd recommend to listen to his CD with Morrissey covers - Colin Meloy Sings Morrissey.

    You forgot "Please Daddy (Don't Get Drunk This Christmas)" which is on Connect Set: the Decemberists which is on iTunes. Quite a few of the songs in your list are on iTunes but I can't seem to find the others on there (or anywhere for that matter). :S If anyone knows, please say!

    The Tain is neither a cover, nor a B-Side. It was a one track album released by a separate label. They sell vinyls at concerts occasionally. just thought i'd let you know.

    Yeah, that's right. I own The Tain as album, but I guessed that many people would refer to it as something like a bonus track. Thank you anyway!
