DimeTravel 130 ::: Thanks to the original taper & trader! ::: Corrections welcome ::: What a f*cking GREAT band - stellar & incredibly powerful set with Walker in his element. Guitar playing is REALLY cool & laid back & then when it comes in, it has a sting & command that rules the show. The new material is first class. In some respects I like the "Hellbound Train" better than the album version. Of course, it's too bad the show isn't twice as long, but be glad we got it. And yes, what I wouldn't give to hear the Mac set in this quality, but it ain't happening from this corner. Great respect for Savoy Brown, amazing how the albums held up, right through "Lion's Share" for me. Listen, enjoy, show appreciation, share, give, spread peace. Yrs truly, Knees
