Mastering Notes:
The first 17.837 seconds of "Intro Music" is missing on the soundboard source.

Show Notes:
There were plenty of 'negative documentation experiences" associated with this show, but out of respect for TMS, will keep those to myself.

As for the show, it's maybe 0.2% behind Baltimore in regards to the onstage product.

A 2 hour 20 minute tour-de-force (mainly due to show closer "Thorn In My Pride"), the band had the Philly crowd eating out of their hands.

And it *was* a good crowd...an easy 500-600 people were soaking up all the goodness in the room.

The highlights were many, and low points virtually non-existent.

If you need confirmation of this, check out "Tied Up & Swallowed", "Every Picture Tells A Story", "Comin' Home", "Girl From The North Country" (Marc & Rich solo acoustic, btw), "The Giving Key", and, yet again, the last 5 songs of the show. (which was a swirling storm of riffage and wreckage).

Sorry for the shownotes brevity, but I'm typing this here in Connecticut, at 7:40pm, and TMS is about to hit the stage in 30 minutes. (there's only so many hours in a day)/

Keep your (CR)B squad Chris...Rich has Marc Ford :D

Oh yeah, thank Dennis, and just tell me to fuck off, as it's food for my soul.

And also, thanks to longtime Crowes fan Mike Wolf for the use of the CA mics. He's a saint and a scholar.
