The featured concert for this episode brings a slightly heavier tone to the LMP than my previous shows. Last year marked the return of a one of the greatest bands in the alternative rock scene. On May 22nd, 2007 the Smashing Pumpkins returned to a stage in Paris after more than a six year hiatus. Original band members Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlain proved throughout that 2007 tour that they still could rock a live show just as they had in their earlier days.

The concert that I selected from the year of the Pumpkin's reunion was taped in Normal, Illinois on October 4th. Part of the reason I liked this recording was the great sound quality but also because of it's proximity to the Pumpkin's old stomping grounds in Chicago. Due to it's location and the time of year, in the recording you can hear the crowd chanting in support of the Chicago Cubs. It turns out that they were playing game 2 of the National League Divisional playoffs that same night which would make a very difficult decision for any fan of the band and the team. Also, a quick warning to St Louis Cardinal fans out there that if you decide to listen to the full concert Billy Corgan has a few unkind words to say about your team. I choose to stay neutral on this and leave this part out of the podcast but the rest of the show is a solid listen no matter which team you root for.
