If you know anything about Garth Brooks, you know his music is pretty hard to find.
He doesn’t release it on streaming services, he won’t put it on YouTube, and up until his partnership with Amazon Music, you pretty much had to hope you heard him on the radio… and who does that anymore?
However, it looks as though Garth finally has some music on the interwebs. Titled “The Last Frontier,” it’s a live album from 1995 featuring rare performances of 10 Garth classics. It’s available on YouTube right now, and appears to be available on streaming services, including Apple Music and Spotify, overseas.
According to the Amazon product notes, the album was recorded in Germany before Garth kicked off a 220-date world tour back in 1996:
Before setting off on this record-breaking world tour, Brooks decided to air material that would be reflective of the forthcoming public shows. Not only did he make both national and international television appearances to promote his new album and tour, he also performed live radio sessions and concerts. In Europe, he decided to take a visit to the NDR Studios in Hamburg and laid down a ten-track set that captured phenomenal renditions of songs both new and old. Broadcast nationally and simulcast in the US and across Europe, it is this very special performance that is presented on The Last Frontier.
The jury is still out on whether or not this will ever get streaming platforms here in America, but you take what you can get, right?
