October 1993 – La Maison de la Radio. Mazzy Star, two weeks into touring behind their second album, So Tonight That I Might See, record a Black Session at studio 105 in Paris. Even now, almost twenty years later, the session feels fresh. And speaking of fresh, there are few records from the 90s in my collection that have aged in such a ‘timeless’ way as the trio of albums Mazzy Star released over the course of the decade. Look for a new record (their first since 1996’s Among My Swan) out later this year.

  6. I bow to you…..been looking for this for as long as memory serves….outfuc*ingstanding!!!!

  7. Wow, Mazzy Star and a Black Session…you couldn’t find a better fit. This knocks the Cat Power Black Session down a notch in my book.

  8. wow, havent listened to these guys in years. thank you! now i realize that this is exactly what i’ve wanted to listen to lately. I second Mark above — it’s perfect thesis-writing music.

  16. Thank you from a Black sessions fan

  17. Great ! If you find more ‘Black Sessions’ please post them, it’s seems like Radio France never wanted to release them properly.

  18. Great! Thank you from a die hard Mazzy Fan! Slight correction: Track 11 is listed as “Wasted”, but it’s actually “Hair and Skin”. Hair and Skin is actually a somewhat rarer track than Wasted, and especially cool to hear live at the link. Thanks again!
