I only became aware of this band, a band that has been around since the early 1990's, after a friend introduced me to a them by requesting a show a year or so ago. It was a 2012 show I first found and as I was playing it I realized I liked it a lot too. I liked the diversity in the music, the songs, and just the overall unique sound the band has. They have an earlier 1960's - 1970's California kind of sound with a mix of other eras of music after that time-frame too. But they did not sound like a band mimicking previous bands in history and they had their own sound.
So after being introduced to something I liked, I did what I do and found more of their music and liked it too. This show does sound a little different than what they usually sound like but since it was in my Requests folder I'm uploading it.

The waveform has no audio clipping, brickwalling, or any other bad traits. The sound is excellent and the mix is too. The first five tracks are acoustical songs and then the band seems to join in and start playing in many tracks after that. But overall, the recording is very well done with no audience interference or noise either.
I was not very familiar with most of these songs and as I looked online to be sure I was naming the tracks right I saw this was a tour that was new for the band. I believe they had been away for a few short years and this was their return (not specifically this show) with new songs they had written.
This is a mellow (sort of country and sort of San Francisco 1969) kind of music they played this night. I don't know if I like it as much as some of the other shows I have uploaded or not? I haven't made up my mind. But I do like it regardless and I like Hope's voice in the show too. It is a very clean sounding recording and I found no audible errors (e.g. breaks in the recording, deviation from the steady mix and sound, etc) in the recording when I listened to the show either.
I was unable to locate any information on who the taper was to give them credit. But to whoever recorded the shows, thank you for an excellent job and for sharing it!
I hope you enjoy the show...
