Show Notes:
This was the final Magpie show of a 7 show run, and we're gonna work backwards with the releases.

This camper was the only taper at 3 shows, and 5 of them were filmed multi-cam (some with 3, some with 4).

All that said, this was a great 'reunion' of sorts, with old Crowes friends from the years all converging on Nashville and Birmingham for the warm
weather and commiseration with friends both old and new.

Three days earlier, I was in -40 degree windchills in Des Moines; temps this day, however, were in the low 70's, or well over a 100 degree difference.

A great show in a BEAUTIFUL venue (a few photos attached), I believe both the sound and the videos will look (and sound) fan-fucking-tastic...and will
let them stand on their own merits (no matrix for this one due to MAJOR flaws with the Church audio source...which totally puts me at ease for always
running two completely different setups)

THANKS once again to Captain Dennis for the lightning-quick turnaround...and lots of fucks for me, as I burned thru 3 full bags of them on this trip...

Musta been the Pink Bubble Gum Wax...or something of the sort ;)

-Dr. Deep is on cloud 10 right now....exhaling repeatedly will do that to ya!
