    Listening to it now.

    Sounds professional. No big stereo separation though. Vocals are a little loud. So maybe just a soundboard? Sounds great though. Lots of energy.

    A total shame that this won't be a series of recordings. Whomever nixed that project needs a spanking.

    No maybe about it. It has been confirmed that it's just a soundboard.

    Oh, package came from Amazon fulfillment center. In a proper vinyl mailer. Record has some pops. Probably needs a cleaning. Gatefold cover with live photos on inside.

    No record label or recording information. Just a middle finger and "records" written underneath. Band members listed with pictures on inside gatefold. Looks like it was designed to be a "bootleg".

    Too bad this didn't become a series. There could be a good documentary/live video CD box from that tour if they wanted it.

    Hopefully next year we get back to the box set reissues.

    Next Friday I get to see Tommy play live.

    You should totally ask Tommy what he knows about it.

    Not sure how much interaction there will be, but my guess is he knows very little about it.

    If it's a true soundboard then the audience recording I've been listening to for the last 9 years is probably better.

    Because it was a soundboard in a big place, you can hear all the instruments on it. Doesn't sound like a big crowd, but I guess that's all what comes through the mikes.

    I did digitize my LP of Riot Fest to 24/96 FLAC and it sounds great and it's all tagged and nice, but don't PM me if you want to hear it as that would be wrong and illegal, especially for such a limited and vinyl only release with minimal marketing. Again, good luck getting this out of me as it will NOT be as easy as PM'ing me so don't even try.

    Anyway, record's good, Paul.

    I received an email from Amazon today:

    There appear to be a few available from Amazon third party sellers but, at this point, I'm longer interested...

    speaking of the 'mats - any word on any further official vault releases?

    i hate making the assumption that "we ought to have something for the holiday market," but i'm also eager to hear more 'stuff' from our minneapolis mavericks, so...

    i guess this is just my little thread bump :)

    Jason from Rhino said they were taking this year off from any archival releases somewhere earlier in this thread or on the thread for last year's release.

    ah - thanks a million, WarEagleRK.

    in that case, maybe this bump serves only to get a couple people to ask themselves "hey, speaking of chris mars - wonder how he's doin' these days?"

    and that'd be FINE BY ME (hi, chris).

    Yes, we took 2022 off to give the fan base a moment to breathe and to figure out where we want to go next (which we're nearly there).

    Already excited for it. (Saying "can't hardly wait" seemed a bit too on the nose.)

    I needed time to breathe, so thank you for that! Just this weekend I was reorganizing some LPs and box sets, and noticed that the Sorry Ma box has yet to be opened up. :yikes:

    I hope I'll be ready in tim for your next deluxe reissue box set. Oops, I meant "time"! :laugh:

    Well, if you're right, then I'm so, I'm so … unsatisfied.

    I don’t care what is next, really. I’m just thankful something is coming and these releases are happening! Thanks Jason and the Rhino Team!

    I think everyone will be very happy with the next phase of reissue activity.

    This version of "Darlin' One" as-is sounds like something that would've been released in the mid '90s - like just the overall sound is perfect.

    sorry for the semi-off topic question/comment. Any chance of a Tommy's band "Perfect" reissue?? It needs some love otherwise it will wither away into the ether never to get a proper reissue.
