  1. Damn, what a set! Hope this finds it's way to archive. I wish those boys would visit us Canadians again, been almost 10yrs since they stopped in Toronto.

  2. Oho yeah! I certainly hope this one turns up for download!

    I love-love-love "How Great Thou Art," especially when Kev sings it!!

  3. I can't get enough of this show. Just got into how "Waiting In Vain" emerges from and disappears into G&J. Sweet.
