Encoded with FLAC frontend (level 6), checked via frontend and shntool A lot of talking/stories from B.B., who always liked to spin a yarn; less playing than the old days, maybe not quite the voice he had (but still sounds good); hey, he's 82 and his touring schedule is intense! A good fun show and I'd still recommend seeing it. DO NOT SELL, PLEASE SPREAD AROUND FREELY, ESPECIALLY TO THE ELECTRONICALLY CHALLENGED! suburbanDK
