    Live at the Roxy sounds great. That Highway Girl story is clever like most of Downie's improv, but when it kicks back into the lyrics it loosely reminds me of the way Pearl Jam returns to Porch in the Atlanta 94 bootleg..... Magical stuff

    I was about to say.. fool me once, I'll wait until they release the live vinyl on it's own.... but the DVD.  That documentary of the another roadside attract tour.... that hits in me in all the nostalgia feels.   A bunch of that documentary is from the Victoria stop, which was the first time I ever saw the hip live (and the only time I remember there being a concert at Western Speedway).  Might have to buy it for that.

    I’m buying it. Loved the Road Apples boxset. Not worried all the albums were sold individually to folks who perhaps could not afford the entire boxset and only wanted the live album, etc. 
    Really looking forward to the FC boxset. 

    What I really am excited for in the future is the Day For Night boxset. 😎😎

    Lustre Parfait is pretty good.

  • Was caught in the YouRube vortex of Americans reacting to Hip videos/performances over the holidays. The reactors generally compare the Hip to REM. There is no doubt the Hip were influenced by REM and Midnight Oil among others.  I personally believe REM heard Day for Night and were influenced by that album, as New Adventures in HiFi has a similar feel in my opinion. When the NAHF vinyl release came out it struck me how Hip like it was. 

    The other thing I observed was how many Baker outro solos exist on their songs. Perhaps I just never noticed before but it appears it was something they liked doing. I’ve always enjoyed a fade out solo to end a song.
