- Bootlegs here In 2013, the group began uploading audio files of concerts to the Live Music Archive. The Chris Whitley Collection now hosts over 50 downloadable bootlegs.
- Blog posts and other goodies here The ATCW blog, a companion to the ATCW FB group, provides “articles” on various CW topics, hosts content (e.g., rare audio files) that cannot be posted to the group, and organizes some of the group content (e.g., a protracted discussion among group members of Chris’s gear).

Short Cuts to Some of the “Best” Group Posts
A definite negative about the FB group is that it doesn’t support organizing content. Thus, if you’re new to the group, you’d have to scroll down down down down to find some of the explosive posts (Danny Kadar’s posting the raw mix of Din) or some of the posts that elicited a lot of discussion (e.g., DK Din, Chris’s gear, etc.). To help newbies find these posts way downstream, I’ve provided links below.
