took a break today & put all of this together into 1 folder, fixed a few things, etc.  good show & recording, quite long with two sets.  and, for me, good music to listen to while working.  might listen to it again.  it was taped by ‘royboy’, but my copy of the dime tracker doesn’t have the original seeder; guess they’d dropped off dime by the time i downloaded it in 2014.

i’m still a bit to busy for cd covers… but who burns cd’s anymore any how?  still, nice to have a picture of some kind, isn’t it?

rename & replay gain, august 2016 [by pete]
the early set was mis-named as from the next day, and the entire show was hard to hear.
i corrected the filenames, moved all files into 1 folder, added replay gain & updated the
checksum files.
