Roseland NYC Live is a live album by English electronic music band Portishead. It was released on 2 November 1998 by Go! Beat.[1] A PAL format VHS video was released the same year, with a DVD version following four years later.[3] Although the New York Philharmonic is credited as appearing in the video, none of the musicians are members of the Philharmonic, nor is the Philharmonic credited in the audio album.[4]

Content[edit]

The album was engineered by Rik Simpson.

Unlike the CD, all the tracks on the DVD were recorded at the Roseland Ballroom. The DVD version has a bonus elements section, containing the music videos for "Numb", "Sour Times", "All Mine", "Over" and "Only You", as well as short films "Road Trip" and "Wandering Star" and the Portishead short film To Kill a Dead Man.
