This is a compilation of my favourite live performances of mostly unreleased songs. It's inspired by the tracklisting of certain sessions. There are a lot of great solo piano tunes on this one, that I love especially.

13. Lions Of Broadway (aka Steve Miller And Weed) - RA & TC 2004-09-13 (The Blue Note, Columbia, MO)
All tracks are soundboard sourced. I made simple fade ins & outs and volume adjustments with Audacity. I also edited Map a little bit to take out one of Ryans mistakes before the first verse. An uncut version of Map is also included and since I couldn't pick one version of Lighthouses I included two very different ones.
Thanks a lot to the people that recorded and shared this beauties!
