Damn I'm surprised I missed this one, Patrick's been one of my favourite vocalists since I saw him in Sydney back in 2007.
Really amazed by how thorough you've been on this thread all on your own, I note-watched him obsessively years before this site existed and I clearly missed a lot.

My internets capped right now so only thing I can contribute atm is the B5 at the end here:

I am pretty alone in my music taste on this place so I usually have to notewatch the discographies on my own Smile

Gonna check the B5 when I get on my computer.

I'm gonna preemptively warn that I only remember it as a B5, my internet is so incredibly bad for the next few days that it's gonna take another 40 minutes to actually download the clip and check the pitch.

He has hit a lot of ridiculously high yet light notes in some of his acoustic sets though, I remember hearing at least an Eb6 (whistle register obviously)

Yeah sounds like a Bb5 going up to a B5 to me. And lemme know if you find anything else.

Yeah it's a B5.

"Teignmouth" has an E2 in the backing vocals during the chorus, and "The Libertine" has an F♯2 in the first verse.
Second verse of The Libertine also has a very strong B4, almost sounds like a black note but that might just be because it's layered with the octave below.

Do you remember which live version of Bluebells had the E2?

Edit: check 3:40 in The Libertine, sounds like a screamed C♯5 going down to B4 even briefly hits the D5

The E2 in Bluebells is just spoken right before the song or something. Can't remember which performance though.

Where is the B4 in The Libertine? I do hear some high backing vocals that could be significant in the bridge right before the chorus. The C#5/D5 sounds like "fake belting" as Spectrum would call it. He has a bunch of those.
