This is one of the best audience recordings of John Prine from the era. The sound quality is almost perfect, except for some background hiss evident. When I received the show, there were a lot of gaps between songs, so I used GoldWave to fix the gaps for seamless playing. I don't have much information on this recording, no lineage either, except that Todd Snider opened the night for John Prine. It was an interesting show - John didn't have any female singer with him that night, so he had to sing both the boy's and girl's parts by himself! It's hilarious. It was also one of the very rare occasions where he sang the unreleased song "The Third of July", which was first performed at Farm Aid in 1990.

Do not sell this recording.
