Colin Meloy Sings Live! is the first live album released by Portland musician Colin Meloy, frontman for the Decemberists.
The album was released in April 2008, and is a collection of live recordings from various nights on the artist's solo tour in early 2006.
It includes stripped down versions of songs by the Decemberists, a song that dates back to Meloy's college band Tarkio ("Devil's Elbow"), live banter and covers of The Smiths, R.E.M., Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, and Shirley Collins.
It includes two previously unreleased songs, "Dracula's Daughter" and "Wonder"
