Hot dog! I didn't know it'd been re-released.

I can finally progress beyond those burns a mutual friend sent me.

Don't get me wrong, the copies are great, but I've always liked having the real thing.

My favorites:

Free - "Live!"

The Black Keys - "Live In Austin, TX"...well, I think it used to be for sale somewhere :huh:

Shorter than anyone's list :lol:...but yeah, they're the only bands I love live anyways. I don't have Nirvana's "Unplugged In New York", but what I've heard from it was good.
