    I wonder how the rythym section reacted to Mark’s suggestion?

    I tried downloading the zipfile. The mp3 is truncated to 5:14. Did anyone else see that?

    Hi Clint – thanks for the note there – I have re-uploaded the file. It should be good now.

    Thanks for updating. I did convert the FLAC into m4a using a free program on MacOS called XLD. It uses the internal audio libraries so if the FLAC is good, it will generate great output similar to what iTunes does.

    So, has anyone documented the difference in the lyrics between this version and the studio releases? I noticed at least one verse being different. I especially liked his comments about the tempo during the performance. That was funny. Does anyone know if he was being serious?
