  1. Mat,

    I have long considered this to be the finest show that the band has not yet released commercially. It is so full of highlights that it belongs in the commercial catalog. I look forward to listening to this new source and experiencing this amazing show again. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Couldn’t agree with you more. This show has all the components, a great acoustic set followed by a steamer Electric set. This recent upgrade is so far the best version IMHO, the mind melting NFA>Caution>Feedback is worth the download alone!
