Available on vinyl for the first time, Live In Paris And Toronto is a concert recording captured on 1998's The Book Of Secrets Tour and originally released on cd in 1999. This deluxe limited edition set features a three lp 180 gram vinyl set in a gatefold sleeve. Captured live in April and May of 1998 in the Salle Pleyel in Paris and Massey Hall in Toronto, this three LP set is, says Loreena, simply 'the sound of us doing what we did'. Featuring performances of all of the songs from The Book Of Secrets as well as a generous selection of favourites from previous recordings, Live In Paris And Toronto was originally conceived as a charitable effort in support of The Cook-Rees Memorial Fund For Water Search And Safety. Its proceeds have now raised millions of dollars for the Fund's work in the fields of water safety and education. Recognizing the growing public appetite for the sound only vinyl can deliver, this release is the 13th high-end audiophile reproduction from McKennitt’s musical catalogue. Copies of this vinyl release come complete with complimentary digital download code.
