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 standard "Time Capsule Tour" setlist, focusing in large part on the band's early recordings that had just
been reissued on the "Hope Chest" album. John Lombardo performs with the band on all of the songs from his era of the band,
and if I recall correctly on a few of the latter-day songs as well.
