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 taken from the silver-pressed bootleg CD entitled "In The Garden Of Eden", which also included the majority
of a 1993 Toronto concert (to be uploaded separately).
This recording was from an FM broadcast of NPR's "Mountain Stage", which was recorded live in Charleston, WV. I think
that there were a few tape generations between the original FM source and the bootleg CD, and IMO the recording also runs
Rob Buck plays a great solo on "What's the Matter Here?" (included in mp3 sample).
