DimeTravel 162 ::: Thanks to the original taper & trader! Thanks to DIMER UncleBoko for weighing in on matters. ::: Corrections welcome ::: Ahhh. The Home Service. I finally got to see them, in 2011, at the Half Moon, after almost 30 years of waiting. Here's one of the earliest recordings of this band to surface so far. It actually preceeds the release of their first 45 by a month. Listen, enjoy, show appreciation, share, give, spread peace. Yrs truly, Knees
