10,000 Maniacs' "The Wishing Chair" L.P. will celebrate its 30th anniversary this year
(original release date - September 23, 1985). Since it seems apparent that the Maniacs
are not being given the remaster / bonus tracks / box set treatment that they so richly
deserve, I've decided to upload all of my 70+ live and rare 10,000 Maniacs recordings
during the coming weeks. Although many of these recordings will be re-seeds of previous
Dime torrents, a substantial number have never appeared on the Dime (and many others
haven't been shared since the Dime's previous incarnation as "easytree.org" circa 2005).

This is a fairly rare FM broadcast of 10,000 Maniacs performing in their hometown of
Jamestown, N.Y. My guess is that it was recorded and broadcast by the community college's
radio station. The interview clips are interesting, but I don't believe they include any hint of
John Lombardo's impending departure (which happened roughly 6 weeks after this concert took place).

I doubt that this is the complete concert. However, it still includes two relative
rarities: a performance of Brian Eno's "Burning Airlines Give You So Much More", and the
Maniacs' own song "Orange". This is the only post-1984 version of "Orange" in my
collection, at least until they resumed playing it during the 1990 "Time Capsule" tour.
