Unheard Shows

It's interesting, and cool, how many of us have not heard a lot of these shows. I have copies of the 13th and 15th but admittedly never listened to them much. Not because of performance but because there is always better sounding 77 to listen to. I also have the 5/12 bonus and the Fallout Jackaroe, and those have always gotten quite a few listens.

Anyway, the rest of 5/12, plus pretty much all of the 11th and 17th is new to me, and the 13th and 15th might as well be... very exciting! (The Tuscaloosa show is one that I always thought would be released some day, so I've avoided listening to it, hoping that my first listen would be to a Normanized version, yeay!)

sound

This box is going to sound like one extended show in a way. They all seem to mixed similarly. This is going to be my second stop when I open the set. The fact David thinks it's the strongest show in the box certainly piques my interest. I've never heard this show before. David, look behind you! It's a whale!
Do you hear a skip/splice in the listening party at 3 minutes 15 seconds? I have to assume that's on the disc as well...
