DimeTravel 211 ::: Thanks to the original taper & traders! ::: Corrections welcome ::: Here's a delightful recording. John's in lovely form. Bert plays a couple of scarce ones (almost no circulating live versions about) & also delivers a smoking version of "Black Waterside" & together they tackle "Blues Run The Game" as a duo, supposedly for the first time ever. The duo set is marred by brevity & Bert's tuning issues, but John's guitar work certainly makes up for it. Jolly good fun, all round. Listen, enjoy, show appreciation, share, give, spread peace. Yrs truly, Knees
