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 an incomplete recording from the "In My Tribe" tour, focusing almost entirely on
the band's pre-"In My Tribe" output. I believe that I had received these tracks as
"filler" at the end of a different show, which accounts for the incomplete nature of
the recording. If you have a complete recording of this concert, please feel free to upload

The sound quality on this recording is excellent, and the transitions between tracks are
smooth despite the fact that many tracks have been omitted.
