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 excellent-quality FM broadcast of a complete "In My Tribe" concert. The setlist is fairly standard for the era,
although the inclusion of a short piano-based original song informally referred to as "After Talking to Myself" is noteworthy.
In most other respects, this recording is very similar to the commonly-circulating Sadlers Wells (London) show from July 1988.
