various live sessions

4 for one: Sloan has been together 20+ years.
sound quality: VG++ to Ex-

ROB SEZ: Scott said I should check out Sloan. So I did. They've been big in Canada, where they're from, for many years. Sloan tried to break through in the "lower 48" some years ago, but no such luck. If you like Big Star, Teenage Fanclub, Posies, etc., then you should give Sloan a try. Thanks for the tip, Scott.
