Five votes according to the final results. Well, don't blame me- I voted twice the last two days!! At least she beat that Andy guy. The band must really have mobilized some people all of a sudden.

Wow, Wes!! I remember now! Well, he sure had the right idea... just years too soon. I still remember getting some kind of a one-sheet for Mosaic (which eventually became the Netscape browser) about the time we finished the first album and trying to figure out just what it was. Me and Steve were look...

Here's an obscure one that I just happened to pull out last week: Jethro Tull Live in New York, 1970. It's the full(er) version of the show excerpted on the Living In The Past album, available as a cd in the 25th Anniversary box. It's really amazingly good. It was right when they were transitioning ...

No, I mean a 3Mb WAV file should represent about 30 seconds of audio. Although that's really still too much. Probably more like 16-17 seconds.

I remember a time when downloading a 1Meg file in under twenty minutes was quite an achievement!

Wow, pre-web!! 3 Meg on probably 2400 baud dial-up, those were the days!! I have no idea who you're talking about. :D

(3Mb- that's only, what, a 30 second file, right! :shock: )

It depends. The drums on Chronometree were acoustic, or at least about 90% were. lex Rex/Shadowlands was played on the DDrums and then edited/retriggered quite a bit on the way to the final product but all the basic stuff was played in live... but I fixed fills and things that I blew/couldn't actual...

There are a lot of great ones to choose from (most already mentioned) but I think my favorite live album ever is Live Magnetic Air by Max Webster. I just wish I actually had a copy!! YesShows is probably second.

We did it at Progscape in Baltimore for sure in '95... it sounded really good!! There was a rehersal tape of it somewhere (probably the Live And Revived" tapes) but I don't know where they are now *lol* As a matter of fact, there is video of us doing it somewhere from Progscape. I'll try and find it...

Hehe- we appreciate that. We talked about doing South Side today and I think it's a go. I get a kick out of playing covers now and then- you're right, you don't want to over do it but it's fun and we're not dropping any of our own songs to do it so think of it as a bonus. We should pull Alaska out a...

SSotS would be easy (at least, musically). TotC would take as much time to learn and rehearse as the whole rest of the set :P If someone could sing it I'd be for doing SSotS for sure (I've known the piano solo for years...)
