BIG THANKS to the taper and glenn s for the share!

Special highlight: The Valleydale Meats jingle. If you like that one, you'll enjoy the live version of that B&G Pies ad in an upcoming post...

Chapel Hill? Carrboro? 
Folks who actually live there don't know where one ends & the other begins...

ROB SEZ: One of the rarer early shows available to enjoy — and enjoy is the word, since this is a nice-sounding recording with terrific performances, several covers, and a generous selection of songs from Repercussion — some of which are not available on other live recordings.
