    I got an announcement a while back that the show ( Orion Studio )that I saw would become available as a download.
    Have not heard anything since.

    I was at that great show....you may have heard my wife tell John Marshall " you were great...better than Ringo Starr" Oh well.

    The new album was recorded at the Baked Potato in LA.

    I think that was the Nektar show.

    ^^^ "coloured vinyl only release"

    Great album cover though. Might be worth owning just for that!

    SM should also consider releasing their Iridium show that has been up on Youtube since the livestream. They were really "on" that night, and Marshall in particular (after he had a few tunes to warm up).

    Only 200 copies, that's what I would call a VERY LIMITED edition.

    "The double album contains twelve tracks across three side with a specially etched side four."

    I'm curious: what's on the "specially etched" 4th side ? A groove-less picture disc ? A blank side to check/adjust your turntable ? Don't they have enough material to fill a double LP ?

    Their set a few months earlier at the Iridium ran about 75 minutes. That's not too much shorter than Third.
