Bootleg: The Books perform "Take Time"

The Books recording didn’t turn out as well, but it is still very listenable. The audience made a lot more noise during the music than with Espers or Will Oldham, and the ‘third member’ of the band you can only glimpse aurally. That would be the footage they projected on a screen behind them that was incredible and jawdropping – really, I appeared like a troglodyte during the whole thing because my mandible was flapping with awe. Enjoy!

Oh – and if you like these bootlegs, you should really buy the records from Harvest Records. Asheville should thank those guys for bringing such great music and presenting it so well. Thank them by spending money at their store.

Here’s the official video and the studio version of the song.
