Hello, 2008 is almost over so i thought I would make a kind of summary of the last decade and select those shows I taped
over the 1997-2008 period which I enjoyed most and then make a personal Top 20 ranking. These shows (excepted for those that
cannot be uploaded on DIME because they are not compliant) will be seeded here from now till the end of the year. Believe me,
all of them were top quality and it was not easy to do a proper ranking. As always, they will span from rock to brazilian
music, to jazz, progressive and pop. You will see here a mix of shows already seeded in my Master Series but deleted since
a long time, some others still on the tracker and some uncirculated shows you've never seen in the trading circuit or here
on DIME. It's going to be some fun, gents. They are all from my masters.

Ready to go? Here we go with #20...

LDB Master Series #156 - #20 in the Top 20 shows

Hello, this is a collection of masters I would like to seed here. I've been taping shows for more than 20 years and have an
awful lot of masters. Most of them are in the old cassette format, some others are on MiniDisc and others are on CD. I've
taped many shows of many artists over the years, so don't be surprised if you will find many different artists taped! Some
shows are already circulating, some others have not circulated through collectors yet. But most of all, enjoy!
They all come from my masters!

DO NOT share this music on mp3, just convert it for your own use. Sharing mp3's is the right way to make me stop sharing
music here.

I loved this show! The Way Up suite was such an amazing piece of music and I truly did not expect that masterpieces could
be composed in the XXI Century. The show was a great summary of PMG career with the whole of the new album in the first part
and then a selection of the best of Pat in the second half. The acoustics of the Mazda Palace (former Palatrussardi) was
awful so the recording could be rated as 9 at best. I tried to improve it a bit but leaving the overall sound intact. This
was a truly great show that deserves to enter in my Top 20. Hope you will enjoy it!
