ROB SEZ: Finds like this one remind me how great it is to be a music fan living in the Internet era. I have a ton of S & G boots, but this DVD just turned up online. Although some tracks from this show have circulated for many years, the fidelity was very poor. Stunned by the high quality of this new, full-length recording, I created a lossless audio rip for my own enjoyment. It turned out so well that I decided to share it here. (Yes, I do know how to spell the last name of Simon's musical partner, but I'm trying to keep the Internet cops at bay — even though this has never been officially released.) Please enjoy.
