Is it? Aside from the well-worn problems with the sound, is it a fair
reflection of the JBC live experience on the road 1992/3? Like, how do
the Western Family tracklist and yer actual live-experience setlist
compare? I ask curiously, from a "didn't get to see JBC for AGES and am
beginning to feel a little left out in a sort of 'Early 1990s: the
wilderness years' kind of way" standpoint.

OK. I tried gin, tortilla chips and my flatmates extra-big stereo but
it still sounded like they were singing into tin cans connected to v e
r y l o n g pieces of string with a dusty old reel-to-reel recording
it all at the other end. Kinda stunted my appreciation.

oh indeedy! it's only through massive indirection that I found this one
out. Wouldn't be too surprised to discover him doing Blue Aeroplanes
flights as well, though.

In my humble opinion, this is probably the best idea that anyone has
had about anything in quite a long while. How much does it cost to
master a CD? :*)

Hey! Up here, there are THREE copies in central Edinburgh alone. And
someone has just bought the last remaining copy of Western Family from
HMV. If you drain central/southern England dry of Butch-product,
there's a mini-glut of the stuff up here.
