ROB SEZ: Here's a far-ranging musical event to commemorate 35 years in music for Mark Mikel, leader of The Pillbugs & producer for many other groups / projects. The set mixes early and later Mark Mikel solo material along with Pillbugs songs. Mikel recruited many friends for the show, which means there are some transcendent moments (eg, songs that feature the string quartet) and some that border on self-indulgence (eg, extended guitar solos, etc.). If you're a Pillbugs fan, you will find much to like. If you're a Mark Mikel fan, you might already have the DVD that's the source for this audio rip (the DVD is pretty much impossible to find anywhere this many years later). ALL PRAISES to Mark for sharing the full concert online, and to Mick for finding a setlist for me (thank you, my musical friend: you always come through).
