Fade Into You, Halah, Flowers in December, Ride it On, Leaving on a Train (a.k.a. Let That Be). Pro-shot video (not an audience recording) Oct. 2, 1994,
Shoreline Amphitheater, Mountain View, CA (San Francisco Bay area). Mazzy Star's
complete 5-song set in one video, 19 minutes.
In 1994 Mazzy Star played the two benefit concerts for
The Bridge School for physically disabled children, the school &
annual benefit both co-founded by Neil Young.
The '94 lineup also included Neil Young & Crazy Horse,
Indigo Girls, Peter Droge, Ministry, Pearl Jam, & Tom Petty.
In '94 there were two concerts on different days,
Oct. 1 & one on Oct. 2. This recording's from Oct. 2.
( I imagine Neil deserves some thanks for this set, & for ensuring
the show was properly recorded & videotaped so we get to enjoy it today!)
SET LIST & Song Starting Times:
1 Halah 0.00

"Leaving on a Train" is an unreleased song the band played live occasionally.
I have other live audio versions of the song (&many other unreleased Mazzy Star songs) uploaded to YT from audience recordings.
Hope Sandoval - vocals, harmonica, tambourine
David Roback - acoustic guitar
Suki Ewers - acoustic guitar
Jill Emery - acoustic bass
Will Cooper (a.k.a. Will Glenn,his real name) - violin
Keith Mitchell - percussion
This is Mazzy Star "unplugged". It seems a rarity
to have the band playing all acoustic instruments.
Mazzy Star played some radio & TV shows "unplugged" too,
but as far as I know only as a duo or trio (with Will on violin),
not the full band for a whole set.
An outdoor venue in full light of day. The stage-shy, would-be "Princess of Darkness"
didn't get to hide in the dark or behind dim lighting this time!
Previously, I uploaded this same show to YT as 5 separate video clips, having first found the show online as 5 separate song clips. I downloaded &, re-upped it to YT that way. Later I thought it would be good to join the 5 files together into one,& have the complete set available in one continuous video, & not chopped up. An added benefit of the single video will be fewer ads,as ads can only appear at the start & end of the set,instead of before & after each song.The ads are not due to the uploader, but are entirely due to The EMI Music Publishing Co. lodging copyright claims with YT on 4 of 5 songs of this set (i.e. the 4 songs released on records in the '90s). EMI claims the right to allow ads & receive ad-revenue from those ads. Let's hope EMI is transferring some of that ad profit to the writers, Hope & David, & to the band.
wolfgangsvault.com added the video of Mazzy's 5 song set to their site, streamable on demand:
That's where I discovered it. I downloaded the video from wolfgang's & uploaded it to YT, & also re-upped it to a file hosting site where anyone interested can freely direct download it, here:
The above downloadable file does not have separate files for each song. As a single file it plays the show through as a continuous set just as this YT video does.
Here's another upload of the same set but divided into 5 individual song files:
Both downloadable files above are in FLV video format. Both seem to have better audio/video synchronization & less video choppiness than the YouTube files have. Of 6 media players tried, GOM Player (freeware) plays back the Bridge School Benefit FLV files best for me.Plus an MP3 audio file with a bit rate of 320kbps (that's good audio quality for MP3) recorded from the video can be downloaded here:
Oct. 2013 update: I maintain & update an extensive (mostly live shows) bootlegs list with download links at new fan forum mazzystar.free.fr of Mazzy Star & related artists (Hope Sandoval, Opal, Rain Parade, etc.). The boots thread is found in the "General Discussion" section. "Worthwhile music's for sharing, not hoarding". The forum also has a thread with eight 2013 press interviews with Hope & David.
