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 radio broadcast from early in the band's "Our Time In Eden" tour. This was the
fifth concert of the tour, and to the best of my knowledge this is the earliest circulating recording from the
Fall 1992 tour. The album itself wasn't released until September 29, nearly two weeks after the date of this

This concert was a benefit for an AIDS-related charity, and was shorter in length than their typical headlining
concerts. My recording fades out midway through "Kerouac", and I'm unsure as to whether or not there are more
complete recordings of this show in circulation.
