Great shows so far, and my recordings sound pretty darn good! I look forward to sharing them.

Come say hi to me at the soundboard...

Last night came out amazing. I'll have it posted on my site later tonight.

A complete recording of this night is now available for direct flac download at my site:

I believe that's longtime YLT sidekick Joe Puleo on "I Heard You Looking."
