Total Time ::: 1:41:27
::: EXC (lovely!) quality, a crisp SBD. Check samples for preliminary ear massage.
::: Warts: None, really, except for missing songs & "Omie Wise" fades in. Top of the line frosted cake.
::: Taped with permission of the artists.
::: Set with both artists is missing 3 songs due to my stupidity (or the soundman's).
::: As is often true with Bert & John, at times tuning wanders into song indistinctly & traxsplits are difficult.
::: Title corrections welcome. Believe #20 ("untitled instrumental") did get a name, but memory fails.

Nothing here ever commercially released to my knowledge. If I'm wrong, please advise & I'll take the offending trax offline.
DimeTravel 127 ::: Thanks to the original taper "me, myself & I". ::: Corrections welcome ::: Two fine gents & extraordinary guitarists. The world is a much more interesting place thanks to their input (and output!). With great respect. Listen, enjoy, show appreciation, share, give, spread peace. Yers truly, Knees
