The Black Sessions is a series of bootleg CD releases from the label Sangatte Records of The Rentals' April 5, 1996 performance on the French radio show, C'est Lenoir.


The Black Sessions is a regular live-performance series on French radio. Like other artists, The Rentals played the show live to air, and the recordings were later made into a very limited set of promo only CDs, for purposes of re-broadcast. These were not offered for sale and are very tough to find on the secondary/collector's market.

However, years later, several re-pressings were made and distributed, and can occasionally be found at online retailers or eBay. It has been theorized that these repressings were made from secondary sources, or even of bootleg origin.
