Comments:

There is already a nice audience recording in circulation, but as this is FM quality, is demonstrably better. Fidelity is fairly typical (compressed) for a local FM broadcast; I believe it was aired live on a local radio station the night of the show. This doesn't have the sound quality of, say, a WWI or WXRT broadcast, but it's extremely enjoyable nonetheless -- and probably the best recording in wide circulation from the tour. With the exception of a CD switch (the seeder recorded this live directly on a stand-alone CDR), this represents the complete performance.

  1. Don't let the "disclaimer" worry about this one. The recording will absolutely be a welcome addition to most Paul Simon collections. I have already enjoyed several track from it, and can only recommend it. So thanks a lot for this one (as well as the many other ones) :-)
