Fine set from Prine and band; unfortunately his comment in t23 proves true. Applause has been balanced, levels raised as required, and shouts and whistles removed or suppressed; enjoy. This is a fresh transfer from my master and therefore will differ from previous uploads of this performance, if any.

Fault: Rather more than usual audience chatter, unfortunately. However it is never louder than background distraction.
