  • Can’t seem to find the “in full” option on iTunes, only the separate videos.

  • Please, think about what I feel, when I read these news involving iTunes. I automatically become frustrated, because itunes does not function in Brazil, this means that my access to this material is denied.

  • I’m sure these will show up on youtube some day

  • i love radiohead – i ve travelled a lot to see them – i bought the boxset – i am in awe with their message to the world – i am in love with radiohead ‘s music – but i am starting to feel confused with all the i-tunes situation and the buss. behind them in the last months – even on dead air space we have feautures that you can only see if you sign up wich i did and them i deleted myself – i am not saying this is bad but i am confused . . . hope the i-tunes deals are because of the label and it is not up to them – i really thought their point of view of i-tunes and the commertial succes was different – i am confused – not blaming on them ( of you if reading this ) but i am really confused .

    with all my respect

  • @pantrus: I doubt the guys from Radiohead make much money (if any) out of this, so I don’t think they’d bother to make a deal with iTunes themselves.

  • aioli – i understand and i am sure this is not about making money for them – at all ! ! ! – but the action of accepting this to be sell on i-tunes after everything i read months back from them about i-tunes – what i mean is it is on i-tunes because someone is making money – bussiness – and even when i am sure they don t care about making money the material it is still been sold on i-tunes – and it sounded before that they were really against all this buss – there ‘s millons of ways to make that available for free or just sell the material on Dead Air Space – i would personally maybe buy it on DAS why to give money to the corporation behind I-tunes ?

    anyway – i am not a judge – thank god i am not – but i ve been feeling touched about a lot of things lately that are very commercial oriented and i think they could be easily avoiv if they wanted to

    again and again – not trying to tell them what to do or being a judge – i am just a bit ” touched ” since i really believe in them and their words and actions

    i thank you for trying to keep me positive –

    ps: do we still remember all the talk about ” NO LOGO ” days ??????

  • umm. Myxomatosis anyone?

  • apple is one of the most anti-green companies there is. they don’t give a flying fuck about the enviornment (and while we are at it, they use sweatshops to manufacture all those ipods)

    radiohead should be ashamed that they are linked into this mess.

  • GO SLOWLY?! YÆÆÆHH

  • I’m watching the previews on iTunes, and is anyone else disappointed with the quality? They look really grainy. Wasn’t this shot in HD?

  • I agree with Steve. Myxomatosis? Was it not included because of its highly offensive content that just has no place on iTunes? Come on!!!!

  • Was broadcasted on VH1 :

    Bodysnatchers / Nude / Myxomatosis / Weird Fishes-Arpeggi / House of Cards / 15 Step / Optimistic / Reckoner / Where I End and You Begin

    And is sold on iTunes : Bodysnatchers / Nude / Weird Fishes-Arpeggi / House of Cards / 15 Step / Reckoner / Go Slowly / Videotape / Bangers ‘n’ Mash / All I Need.

    They’ll probably release another DVD with all the tracks this time to get some more money.

  • The HTTT tracks and Optimistic were not included because then it’s no longer just “In Rainbows from The Basement.” Similar to I Might Be Wrong tracks focusing only on Kid A and Amnesiac. I actually prefer it in this fashion.

  • I would actually prefer what Manu is suggesting. I listen to my iPod everyday (nice distraction in the morning bus on the way to work) but I never really watch it.

  • They’re all on youtube already, both Thom’s solo recordings from a while ago (Videotape, Down Is The New Up, Last Flowers) and Radiohead’s session.

  • Oh, and Analyse is in Thom’s session too.

  • The files is labeled as ‘iTunes Plus’ (= 256 kbps, no DRM) BUT… the bitrates are almost 128 kbps and the video files are protected.. so bummer. But the performance is grreat.

  • They don’t even have Where I End and You Begin. That’s the only one I really want.

  • All the From the Basement vids, including Thom’s solo performance, VH1′s broadcast and the iTunes exclusive vids are already on YouTube! :-) BTW – the iTunes Bangers is the version featured on Pitchfork.tv a while ago.

  • no Jigsaw though, weeeak. Am I the only one who doesnt care much for Bangers? Not really feeling that one

  • Anyone know if jigsaw was recorded the same day, but not included on the vid?

  • This is not the full session. For some reason iTunes left off:
    Where I End And You Begin
    I Might Be Wrong
    Myxomatosis
    &
    The Gloaming which not many people know.
