Whoah! I was at this gig and it was one of the greatest nights of my life. Only E=mc2 has circulated before on the "Freedom Beat" concert video. Massively looking forward to hearing this and thanks for the link.

The sound mix is way off at the start of Medicine Show but it soon settles down into something pretty decent. Obviously at a festival there wouldn't have been time for a sound check.

Thanks for these Weller!

Any chance anyone with a dime account could post the whole show? I'd be interested in hearing the whole thing for historical purposes, if nothing else.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but I see references to Dime on here from time to time. Is it a private group? Does anyone have a link or know how you join? Thanks.

I was there all day, and believe me, it was dull as fuck.
