This is the only time I got to see Al (so far). It was a wonderful performance, full of great music, great musicians, and Al's
usual witty banter. During this time, Al would make up a new title each night for the instrumental rag that led into Year Of
The Cat. I think that night's title was rather whimsical, to say the least. Venue was just a local bar, not the best acoustics.
However, the recording is quite listenable, perhaps a B-/B. It has seen only limited circulation up till now, and feedback has
been positive.

Just a suggestion regarding disc split when burning - I chose to start Disc 2 after Nostradamus, as there is already a tape flip
at that point.

I have relied on information provided by others for details above. If any information can be confirmed, added, or corrected, I
welcome it.

No artwork. Anyone wishing to create some is also welcome.
