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 one of several full-length concerts that the band played in October 1991. In addition to this show, they played
three shows at the Marquee at the Tralf in Buffalo. During those shows, almost every song from "Our Time In Eden" was
performed live (frequently with different lyrics or as instrumentals). Evidently "These Are Days", "Tolerance", and
"I'm Not The Man" hadn't been written yet, as they were not peformed live until early 1992.
