I want to preface this by saying if you're
looking for Whining Boy, Stop Drinking, Gloria,
Brown Eyed Girl, etc then this Best Of series
is not for you-This compilation features
one of's,great performances of classics
and unusual readings of songs and finally
"Songs That I Like"
They are all blended as seamlessly as possible
to make it seem like each volume is a concert
in itself. When burning to CD use DAO-no pause
in between tracks and you will have great concerts

We Start off Vol.4 with a track from Swansea
where he seems to like to perform. Then Benidorm
where we have the only performance of Custard Pie
alone of the year. Back to Swansea with a great reading
of Fast Train.

the year
