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 was another show from early in the band's Mary Ramsey era, featuring a variety of songs that were to be released
on the album "Earth Pressed Flat". The only song that could even be remotely considered as a Natalie-era song was "Angels of
Stone", which started life on the "Lost Songs" demo tape prior to being reinvented as a John & Mary song.

The sound on this recording is overdriven and as such can be a bit distorted during the loudest moments.
