note: discs 1 and 2 do NOT join seamlessly. Almost, but not quite. It's just crowd noise, but it's at different levels at the ending/beginning of each track respectively.

note from a reviewer: Sickest show I've ever been to...MMW or otherwise. Absolutly gorgeous takes of 'The Lover', 'Anonymous Skulls', and 'The Letter'. Cyro Baptista was incredible, as were the Antibalas horns. The show was over
2.5 hours long, but maintained the energy throughout. I highly recomend
downloading/trading for this show.
