From the original uploader:
The mix on this puppy is excellent! It is not a monitor mix but the actual house mix so all instruments are present and in full stereo. The clarity of the recording is remarkable: you can hear the band’s footsteps as they first walk on stage as well as onstage patter between the musicians.
All of Lucinda’s song intros have been given their own track ID’s so that they may be skipped over during playback or completely edited out when burning to CD.

This sickness has knocked me flatter than expected. Me and my daughter have been trading off stomach bugs and flu viruses for two weeks now. I think we’re finally over that but yesterday I came back with a killer cold. Recovery is in my sites, but darn if it isn’t still a few days away. On top of that there are parental visits both here and a far so, plus we just found out the house we’re renting sold so we have to move soon. All of that’s more than you guys need to know but it is to say we’re still weeks away from me posting in any sort of regular fashion.
And of course I’m still figuring out what site to use. I like the way Rapidgator runs for the most part except it seems to be having trouble with multiple uploads at once. It says it can handle them and allows me to try but inevitably one or more get hung up in the process and I have to go back and try again. Which is a hassle. I looked at Zippyshare but they have a 200 mb limit which isn’t disastrous, but it is annoying having to break the files up every time. I’ll give it a whirl sometime though and if everything else works right I may just have to suck it up.
Someone mentioned Hotfile and if my memory serves they are alright but it seems like they are a hassle in terms of downloading as a freeloader. Don’t they make you wait awhile between downloads and do silly things like type in those goofy letters to prove your human and the like? That crap drives me crazy as a downloader. Anyways keep bearing with me. Hopefully we’ll get back into the swing of things sometime relatively soon.
